18K Chinese Jadeite Jade Pendant
Here is a very pretty 18K Chinese jadeite pendant from a Kennebunkport, Maine estate. It is marked 750 on the jump ring, but I have had a hard time trying to show it in a photograph. The pendant measures 1 and 1/2" by 1 and 1/8" with a lovely soft jadeite green color. I have tried to determine what the animal depicted in the carving is, and the best that I can discern is a bat at the top. I don't know what the rest of the figure is. There is a Chinese symbol carved into the lower left hand side, but again, I don't know what it means. The back in not carved but is engraved with a design which I have tried to show. In the side view I have tried to show the depth of the carving which is substantial. It is such a pretty pendant with great color. If you love Chinese jadeite, this is a very lovely vintage piece for your collection to bring you good luck. All you need to do is add your favorite gold chain! It would also make a wonderful gift for someone who loves jadeite jade!
