Item:153833359152I Collected this beautiful rich green jade stylized bat from a street merchant in a tiny village in China over 40 years ago. The owner attested that it had been passed down through several generations but this was the time of Maoist thinking and "old" things should not be treasured any longer...sad but true. The overall wearable length is 9" and the chain is sterling. If the new owner wanted a longer chain it would be easily replaced but I like it more as a choker style so the bat really shows off. The Chinese see the bat as a good omen and a bringer of blessings to its owner. The deeply carved ornate bat pendant is 1 1/2" in height by 2" in length. I travelled a great deal when I was younger and brought back many wonderful treasures from around the globe and it is time for many of them to go to new appreciative homes.Condition:EXCELLENT, Brand:Antique, Metal:Necklace, Featured Refinements:Jade Necklace, Region of Origin:China, Metal Purity:Sterling Silver, Style:Pendant, Age:Pre-1800, Original/Reproduction:Antique Original, Type:Necklaces & Pendants, Main Stone:Jade, Color:Green, Ethnic Origin:Chinese
