Large antique Chinese chased silver lock with two sides featuring a Carved Jade insert. It's a tad shy of 6 1/4" at the widest, 4 1/2 " length, 3/4" deep. Excellent condition. Missing torque circular necklace, but a rare lock with the Hetian Shou symbol jade.

Seventh Rank Mandarin Duck rank badge. This one evinces unconventional use of roundel in this unused rank badge.

Perfectly preserved from an especially well cared for collection.

Incredible for a piece this age and quality.
Lovely silver or bitong enamel antique Chinese bracelet. Although the bracelet is stamped, the metal appears to be lower grade with silver embellishments and some copper enamel.

Beautiful double sided Peking knot tassel with bat, peony and vase motifs rendered in tiny Peking knot work. Exquisite quality textile in fantastic condition with vibrant saturated colors. Measures 14" X 2.5".
