Beautiful and rare antique Chinese green glass pendants, often mistakenly called Peking glass, made in the early 20th century to be used as counterweights to Mandarin court necklaces.  These have the soft colors and bubbles of old Chinese glass. This type of glass was often intended to  simulate gemstones such as jade, lapis and quartz..  Each of these pendants is unique.  Each has a metal cap, some with the remains of iridescent Kingfisher feathers, very popular in court jewelry.  The length of the drop, cap and small glass bead atop averages 42mm and the width at the bottom of the pendant 18mm. 10mm thickness at the bottom. We are very excited to have acquired these gorgeous beads.  These are very difficult to find and we have very limited quantities. Sold individually.
