Luck, blessing and prosperity arrived at home!
A pair of hat pins, bearing the "fu" character :-)
3.3cm diameter, long stems, 24.5 and 21.5cm.
Unmarked, but I know they were made in Indochina, as my grand -mother, who lived in Saigon, had various accessories made there.
Very oxidized, I cleaned them with a silvercloth, leaving the dark patina in dragon's background.
The stems are very thick, never seen same till now... perhaps for straw hats as no fabric could resist to their piercing!
They joined the bunch of long hatpins displayed in a high glass dome.
