Vintage Ming Pottery Shard Sterling Pendant Necklace
A large and round antique Ming Dynasty pottery shard, makes up the lovely floral design of this vintage pendant necklace, with classic Chinese blue and white "flow blue" ceramic set in sterling silver.
The large sized pendant features what appears to be part of a lotus flower design in front, with a bit of leafery on the reverse side. The shard is set in a hand wrought sterling silver bezel and suspends from a decorative sterling silver 21-inch long chain, stamped “Sterling” on the spring ring clasp.
The pendant portion measures a handsome 2&1/4 inches in size, weighs a total of 28.8 grams (with chain), and is stamped “925”.
