A fabulous Chinese export gilt sterling silver enamel hippocampus amulet pendant, circa the 1920s-1940s.
This pendant is crafted from sterling silver in the form of an articulated hippocampus. It has 9 segments which allows the entire body of hippocampus to "swim" and move freely when worn.
Chinese export or trade silver refers to silver products made for export to the Western market.
The hippocampus in excellent condition with no damages or repairs..There is no hallmark but it tested positive for 900 or 925 sterling silver.
This adorable hippocampus measures 1-1/4”inches width by 2-7/8” inches length.Total weight: 9.47grams.Chain is not included.
It is truly a unique piece that is quite a catch!
Thanks for viewing!
