19th century, China & ancient Central Asia
The silver piece with lovely patina and whimsical figure is a fabulous charm from a Chinese hair stick. Our silversmith did a gorgeous job on the restoration with riveted sterling as shown on the back side. The tiny bronze Bactrian bells with the real beautiful verdigris color of centuries, are from Jewels’ collection of ancient pieces. It the the acquired over centuries that is so beautiful.
