This beautiful antique Chinese Export jade dress clip hails from the Art Deco era of the 1920s. It is crafted in sterling silver and set with a green carved jade Lotus, the sacred flower of Buddhism.
The jade tests in the jadeite range on the Presidium Gemstone Tester and it is a lovely deep apple green. The stone is well carved with pierced holes and it is claw set into a silver border decorated in rope and twisted silver wire trim. The back of the clip has a donut hole to allow the passage of light through the stone and it has a tight spring bar closure.
The clip is stamped 'CHINA' and 'STERLING' on the back and it is in very good antique condition with light surface wear in keeping with age and the fastener in perfect order.
A fabulous and very versatile Art Deco gem to add to your antique jewellery collection. The clip looks incredible suspended on a sterling chain, it lies perfectly flat making for a gorgeous antique pendant! Please note the chain in the photos is not included.
