Chinese Carved Jadeite Jade and Silver Ladybug Frame PinSKU: 8275
Jadeite jade is expertly carved with leaves and berries as the centerpiece to this lovely pin. The silver gilt frame is decorated with twelve ladybug insects. Although this brooch looks to be Chinese export jewelry, it is unmarked so it is unlikely that it was created for that market. A wonderful example of early 20th century Chinese jade jewelry.
