 "SOLD" Thank you,California 
This very elegant but simple Chinese ivory pendant is perfect for hanging from a silk tassel attached to a fine piece of cabinet furniture or just wearing as a pendant around one's neck.The meaning of the four characters on the toggle is"Enjoy the lotus pond in the summer." The condition is very good with minor age veining as noted in the photo enlargements.Circa:Qing Dynasty,Mid to late 1800's.Size:1 3/4"in diameter x 1/4"thick.This is not a fancy Chinese toggle but its one I would want for my collection.
