Chinese ornament & freshwater pearls.
Delicate late 19th century Chinese ornament probably from a hairpin, with tiny pearls and kingfisher feathers. It represents a butterfly on chrysanthemum flowers. Some of the tiny pearls have been replaced but it is otherwise in extremely good condition for an antique piece. The beautiful cultured freshwater pearls are high quality with a lot of luster. It is finished with a vermeil clasp. One-of a Kind!
