Quantity available: 1
In many cultures, birds are thought to be a supernatural link between Heaven and Earth. In India birds represent departed souls; whereas in Christian art, birds are often portrayed as saved souls.They guard mankind and act as mediators between Heaven and the Earthborn (us)..It is hard to tell if this bird is a mythical dragon or a winged creature from mythical times, but he is fierce and protective over his owner. He is made of sterling as are the fobs and chains that hang from him. A sterling padlock that holds the name Millie March 8 1899. The sterling tassel is victorian and the tiny cage holds stone that is possibly jade or malachite.  The necklace is 25" long ( it has no closure) an it has huge silver filigree balls ( content of chain unknown). The large pendant is 5" long and one of a kind. I have never seen another like it. On the back of the pendant is a place where a pin must have been at one time. It is no longer there.  If this is sold overseas it will have to be send insured or registered since it is irreplaceable.     VintageSparkles offers Layaway on all our pieces regardless of which site it comes from.All layaway payments will need to be in the form of a check or money order only.
