The year of the Dragon... The most popular year for Chinese babies to be born! I happen to know that that was last year (2012.) The dragon is so well loved by the Chinese as it brings good luck and good fortune... This is the first pendant of this size I have ever seen. The detail is superb. The dragon is decorated with multi-colored enamel on both sides and all around his head and even his teeth.

This was made of a silver base metal and it has gold vermeil over. There is a large bail on top which will take a thick ribbon or a heavy chain. It is large and measures 3" long x 2" from the top of the bail to the bottom of his feet. I literally do not see one bit of missing enamel. It is stamped Sterling on the very top of the bail. It is such a well made piece and I am certain that this was made either in China, or perhaps in San Francisco's Chinatown as I purchased this near San Francisco. It is wonderful and weighs 9.5 grams. I have seen bracelets and rings and even earrings with the dragon however this is by far the best pendant or necklace that I have ever seen. Circa 1940 and Excellent Vintage condition. Questions are always welcome.
