This is a wonderful Chinese export, Koi fish pendant. These are handmade of Chinese silver
and enamel with a gilt finish. The gilt finish has softened in color so the fish would be perfect
for a gold or sterling silver chain. I see a silver mark on the ring on the very top of the original chain. The enamel is a gorgeous shade of medium blue with pearl white and orange and red accents.

The fins and body are jointed enabling the fish to move and wiggle. The scales are individually formed. It's orange and yellow eyes bulge out and it has whiskers near it's red mouth. All the older Chinese export, carp are known have these kinds of whiskers. An original chain is attached on top for hanging the fish as a pendant. He is large, three inches long and about 1 1/4 " high including the fins.

He is in very good condition with only a small chip of enamel missing from the tip of his
underbelly gill right near his right front fin, not uncommon for a Koi of this age (see last pic).
It is only noticeable upon close inspections and not at all while wearing. The detail put into this piece is fabulous and much too expensive to be reproduced today.

**This listing is for the Koi fish pendant only. It does not include the chain.

This is truly an heirloom piece, ready to wear a lifetime and pass down or to have as an investment to resell at a later date. He is a colorful and elegant conversation piece, sure to draw attention. (reticulated, articulated, movement)
