This a finely crafted Chinese Brooch with a central Dragon and decor, Cast in French Silver and then hand chased and finished for the design.
The size of this Brooch is approx. 2 inches in diameter. The panels surrounding the Dragon depict flowers, swirls and flourishes. There is a French Hallmark on the thin edge that appears to be the "crab" mark, and two petite indiscernible marks on the pin on the back..it has the typical French closure of to slide over the pin tip, and the mount for it has a petite mark that cannot be discerned.
We do love Dragons, and this is a fine and "angry" example, that could be worn on a sweater or also on a Hat !!
