If you like 'different' and/or a 'mystery', this hefty bronze Chinese pendant is different and a bit of a mystery.
It looks like a keyhole at the center with a powerful-looking Chinese man along the side. It looks like he's doing Tai Chi (an old Chinese Martial Arts). The back has several Chinese messages so we contacted our friend from Hong Kong who gave us the following translations...
Upper left – Brave person
Lower left – Magic wind
Lower right – “something???” horse
Middle left – Peaceful and beloved place
Middle right - Brave place to live
She added that there are some words that are either 'old style writing or new style simplified writing' that she didn't quite understand.
The pendant measures 3 inches across by 3 1/4 inches high. It's 1/8 inch thick. It weighs 173 grams. The pendant hangs from a thick dark brown cord. There's a large coral color bead on each side...maybe Peking glass or genuine coral. The necklace measures 19 inches around with a secure spring ring clasp.
The pendant has a very nicely aged patina to the bronze. (I'm wearing it now and am happy to report that it feels 'important' and my neck is still intact.)
So, to recap...different?...yes. Mystery?...yes. Unique?...definitely, yes!
