Fabulous Chinese Enamel Silver Articulated Koi Fantail Fish Figural Vintage Earrings.
I just love these artful fish! Vintage Chinese export made from 800 silver as was typical when these were made. They have a fabulous fan tail that is wide and beautifully sculpted.
The mouth is open with great expression and the carnelian colored enameled eyes really make it Pop! Done in shades of alabaster gray with light blue underbelly and a reddish enamel mouth. While the body is Silver in color, the French pierced hooks are a newer later addition and are gold plated, these can easily be changed (by your local jeweler) if so desired. I think they add great contrast. They look Fabulous on and are a larger size which gives them great presence. As with all delicate vintage enamel there are slight imperfections but I do not see any missing enamel and as such would consider these in wonderful vintage condition. Priced accordingly to sell quickly!
Measuring 1 3/4" wide x 2 1/4" hanging with hook.
I just Love these and I have no doubt you will too! Dont wait till they are gone.
According to Chinese culture, fish represent new beginnings, growth and development, energy and good luck, money, abundance and long life.
