Antique Chinese Carved Jade & Silver Hair Pin c19th Century Qing

This old Chinese hairpin is from the Qing Dynasty era...circa late 1800s. The pin is made of 800 silver embellished with a carved piece of jade that appears to be in the form of an Immortal. The detail of the figure is best seen when turned toward the light. Two tiny coral seed beads dot the jade.

These jade hairpins were worn by people of status. According to popular belief at the time, jade protected the wearer from evil and secured good health.

The pin measures 2 5/8 inches long. It's 5/8 inch wide across the top of the pin. It's in very fine condition. These early Chinese jade hairpins are rare. Though many were 'similar', no two were exactly alike because each was made by hand.
