Up for your consideration is this lovely carved gem quality lapis lazuli pendant depicting a Chinese scholar and maiden -- probably a marriage -- set with a gold pendant attachment of Gaudiesque / Art Noveau design. In the best Chinese tradition, the artist has cleverly incorporated the pyrite inclusions so that they appear to be part of the design, and the organic style gold setting is a perfect complement. A stunning piece.
Size: 2 3/4" to top of bale.
Good antique condition, with general light wear; no damage, restoration or repair that we can spot.
