This rare piece of antique Chinese butterscotch amber is a delicately carved and articulated jewel. It is set off in a pendant brooch in a highly refined vermeil filigree setting with a wonderful dragon weaving around the pendant. The main subject is the wheel of the dharma, with an eight petaled flower set in the auspicious wheel, with a bat, flames and floral embellishments. The amber is in perfect condition with no chips or cracks. The amber itself without the filigree setting measures 37mm X 32mm. The entire piece weighs 13 grams.
