Vintage Chinese silver brooch in the form of a phoenix, the bird's magnificence illustrated with vibrant enamels. This is one of the most attractive pins I have had recently - I also love its size; not tiny nor overwhelmingly big, it can be worn easily even every day. In excellent vintage condition with absolutely no losses in the enamel (just a couple of very tight, short surface cracks here and there) and the vermeil in very good shape as well. The brooch measures 2 5/8" long by 1 1/8" tall and weighs 8.2 grams. It is simply marked "SILVER" on the back and I believe it dates in the 1930s-40s period.
