Description

An unusual antique brooch with a mythical Fenghuang or Pheonix bird, dating to around 1900. Marked and tested as 800 silver, this may have been made in Europe by a Chinese silversmith working abroad or have originated in China but been stamped in the country it was exported to, possibly following conversion to a brooch. Chinese silver is more normally stamped with a makers mark or 900 however, so this has remained a mystery as I have been unable to place it definitively.
