Vintage Chinese Pin and Earrings Set
A unique hand-crafted vintage Chinese pin and earrings set. Purchased by the former owner in the latter part of the 20th century at a high-end Artisan Craft Show in San Francisco.
The pin measures 3-3/4″ long and 1-3/4″ wide. It features a reproduction of an antique Chinese coin w/ several findings attached, including a charming carving of three baby birds or chicks standing on each other (the third one is peeking out from behind the one on the bottom). Hanging beneath is a narrow carved horn bar with stamped circles, possibly an old game piece.
The earrings are 2″ long. They have pierced post backs, gold tone findings and carved stone beads, the lower one being jasper.
