Since most of us can't afford true ancient artifacts and jewels, Alva Museum Replicas was a company that made museum ancient treasure replicas from about 1960 through the 1990s.
This large vintage goldtone pendant is a replica of an ancient Chinese piece that probably sits behind glass in a museum. The pendant measures 2 3/8 inches across and hangs on its original gold link chain that's 21 inches around. There's a secure foldover clasp.
The pendant has an openwork design with Chinese writing in the center. There's a flower on the side. The back is marked ALVA MUSEUM REPLICAS. Condition is excellent. The goldtone is even throughout though photo shows light and dark areas. No wear to metal. A great vintage pendant with museum approval.
