A tisket. A tasket. A hand-carved yellow basket. And guess who turned it into a home? Of course,...the curious cats. They're peeking out of the old hand-carved bone basket with another cat draped over the handle.
This old carved pendant gets its 'aged' coloring from being steeped in a tea bath. It's a complex process that was used in China to create a wonderful antique-like patina on bone. (NOTE - this is NOT ivory.)
The pendant measures 1 1/4 inches across by 2 1/4 inches high. It hangs from an added goldtone chain that's 18 inches long.
The basket has a great detailed weave and those cat faces are funny and adorable. The pendant is perfectly polished and smooth to the touch. Excellent vintage condition. Circa 1950s.
