This is a beautiful antique Chinese Qing era sterling silver hair or stick pin depicting a pair of lotus seed pods in silver and a carnelian Peking glass lotus blossom in front. There are no markings. The metal tests positive as sterling silver.
The pin measures 4.5" long. The carnelian lotus blossom is .75" across. Each seed pod is .375" across.
Condition is good.
This is the nicest antique Chinese pin of this sort I have come across recently. These are becoming harder and harder to find. The lotus motif is especially nicely worked in this one.
Offers considered, except on Red Tag sale items and on items with final reductions.
