Antique Chinese Kingfisher Double-Sided PendantAntique Chinese Kingfisher Double-Sided PendantAntique Chinese Kingfisher Double-Sided Pendant

This is an extraordinary, antique Chinese kingfisher, double-sided pendant, with bright blue kingfisher feathers beautifully complimenting the tiny bright coral woven beads. This pendant was at one time probably attached to an elaborate necklace worn by a wealthy woman of the Mandarin Court. These materials were costly at the time. The coral being imported from Italy and the beads woven together with a two needle woven stitch which was labor intensive. The kingfisher feathers were rare, desirable, and in demand and the Chinese artisans would glue each kingfisher feather clipping painstakingly onto the ornament they were decorating. This pendant measures 3" in height by 1.5" in width and is in poor antique condition with many missing feather clippings, especially from one side. Its condition is reflected in its lower price.
