This is an adorable vintage Chinese articulated silver enameled fish pendant that comes with a chain.
The fish tests positive for sterling silver and is 2 1/8" long. He has beautiful blue enamel coloring and an orange mouth. The enameling is actually done in two shades of blue, as can be seen ion the listing photographs. The lighter blue is approximately a sky blue color, and the darker in more of a royal blue hue. The very bottom underside panels of the fish have a silver enamel. The pendant looks to be in good condition, with no loss to the enamel.
The 18" chain has a hallmarked 14 karat ring style clasp, and the clasp and end ring both test (acid and electronically) as 14k. The remainder of the chain, however, tests as very low karat gold (possibly 6k), so to err on the side of caution, I am representing it as gold filled. It is in good vintage condition.
The chain has a weight of 2.7 grams and the fish weighs 7.5 grams.
