This is a large vintage articulated Chinese enameled bearded fish. This lovely piece measures an impressive 2" long x 1 3/4" wide , will be wider yet including the beard. The piece seems to have a vermeil wash in bright gold color from mouth to tail. The swags of delicate metal work enhanced with Cloisonne enamel work. The piece has no top fin and I do not see where it would have been attached, the bail is on the top for the pendant.
You have a interesting conversation starter here and a wonderful addition to any vintage collection. There is slight wear to the metal but no other obvious damage. This is in very good to excellent condition.
As always thank you for visiting and happy shopping.
