Very good condition - Flexible ring size - 17.2 g in total

Three original antique or vintage silver RINGS, Qing dynasty, China, first half 20th century.
Silver or silver metal, varying silver grades found during the acid test.
Very fine and detailed handicraft.
In excellent condition. Beautiful patina. Very wearable. Also a beautiful collector's item.
Due to the way the rings are constructed, the ring sizes can be easily adjusted in both directions (see photos).
Collected around 1980 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, at the time when the Chinese antiquity warehouses opened after the Cultural Revolution and many antique items were sold in the West.
Largest one, with flowers and leaves: 6.3 g, 2.7 x 1.9 cm, diameter 1.7 cm.
Middle one, with two human figures at a pagoda: 6.8 g, 2.3 x 2.1 cm, diameter 1.6 cm.
Smallest one with two sages, slightly ajour: 4.1 g, 1.3 x 2.1 cm, diameter 1.7 cm.

    Goed verpakt verzonden. Ik vond wel dat de geschatte waarde van de muts veel te hoog lag.

    Sorry to learn that you are disappointed. First, the estimate of the expert is euro 350-450, so you paid a very good and low price. Second, in the description it was mentioned silvermetal (zilvermetaal) and low silver alloy (zilver legering), but not silver. Third, as you could see on the many photo's this type of Chinese pendant has no back-cover; the back side is always open.

    Ondanks de stevige doos waren er wat kralen kapot, vloe papier is niet voldoende.
    Verder aardige koop.
