Vintage unusually large genuine Chinese cinnabar bead of superior quality measuring 30mm in diameter or almost 1 1/4" ! Genuine cinnabar beads are made from a lacquer which is derived from a tree sap found in China.

The tree is tapped like a maple and the resulting gum is purified by heating and then made into lacquer by adding a solvent. This resulting lacquer is slowly added in many layers over a wood base.
The lacquer can be colored in various hues including black, red, green, yellow and brown although most people are only aware of the red cinnabar.

You can see from all the photographs that the carving is exquisite with a lot of high relief to it and great detail.

These many layers of lacquer are then hand carved with intricate designs representing various symbols or images found in nature such as birds and flowers.

I 100% guarantee this red cinnabar bead to be vintage lacquerware and from China and purchased in 1979 although it is most likely much older than this. I've added silver plated beads both top and bottom and this fan pull comes with 7" of ball chain.

****Many of the "cinnabar" beads that you will find at gem shows these days are imitation and made out of plastic but this is genuine. Price is for this one fall pull.

Many people sell such shards as 'antiques' and not the reproductions that they truly are and that are currently being exported from China.

I have the documentation to prove that all the porcelain shard pendants that I use in my designs are genuine Qing Dynasty ( 1644- 1911) or Ming Dynasty ( 1368-1644 ) antiques. I purchased a few of these gorgeous porcelain shards during a buying trip to Hong Kong during the late 1970's.
