.....chinese twisted knot......

I purchased this vintage coral colored carved Bakelite piece at an antique shop when I was in Shanghai, China several years ago. I was attracted to it because it is so intricately carved and looks so much like red coral but I am pretty sure it is Bakelite. When I bought it, there was a little gold plug in the top which I think is brass or gold washed metal of some sort and I took the piece to a well known Minneapolis jewelry designer and had her add the sterling silver asymmetrical decoration and bale to it so I could wear it as a necklace. It's quite unusual and definitely will garner attention to the wearer.

Hallmark: Sterling (on the decoration/bale), Bakelite piece is unmarked

Size: 2 1/4" x 15/16" (this includes all the way to the top of the bale); Grams: 14

Condition: Very good vintage - silver needs a little polishing - there is a flaw in the Bakelite (as shown in the photo), but it can be worn towards the body and never will be seen
