Finely-woven coral beads form a chain on which is suspended a round gilt medallion covered with brilliant blue Kingfisher feathers with a coral and Kingfisher drop at the bottom. The medallion is two-sided and its center is highlighted by additional woven coral beads; I believe it is in the form of the Chinese symbol for Longevity. The two large coral beads are actually coral-colored glass.
SIZE: the medallion is 1-1/2" in diameter. The bottom drop adds 1-1/4". The woven coral chain is 23" long and there is an additional 6" of cording.
AGE: late 19th century
CONDITION: the woven coral chain is in very good condition with one small area showing an old repair. There is some loss to the kingfisher feathers, which is typical for jewelry of this age.
