This is a gorgeous large gilded silver Chinese export jade set dress clip brooch in the form of a stylized moth with outstretched wings. The moth's back and each wing is set with an oval mottled green jade cabochon stone. The wings and body are highly textured with a detailed design of foliage and more bat like moths. The back side has a sturdy clip with good spring. It is marked China Silver and a maker's stamp. The metal content tests positive as silver but of a grade below sterling and is estimated to be 800 grade silver.

This piece measures 3.25" x 1.875". The center stone measures 8mmx12mm and the side stones are slightly smaller at 7mmx11mm. It weighs 18.6 gr.

This is an impressive beautiful piece from the early 1900s. Dress clips are wonderful jewelry accessories to slip on a lapel, collar, neckline or accent a hat.
