Antique, Chinese, archaic mottled celadon jade kingfisher bird pendant, late Shang or early Zhou dynasty. A rare charming antique Chinese mottled celadon jade pendant, depicting, what seems to be, an unusual kingfisher. The pendant is carved in a lovely arched angle, emphasizing with the shape of the head and the bulging. Eyes the typical outlines of a kingfisher.

There are two holes drilled at the lower part of the back of the head, for suspension. Even though there are evident signs of age and corrosion, the fine old polish is evident.

From an old French collection. Size: 6x3.5x1.5 cm.
