Interesting hand made brooch. It is an very old mahjong game tile that has been. Finely carved with a figure & flowing vase. Ustom set into a silver toned pin frame. Annetille or wire work decoration all around – front and back. The tile itself may be much older – I don’t have any way to know for sure. Size : Aprox 43 mm x 27 mm x 3/8 tall or thick (not including pin back) – 13.8 grams on my scale. Marks : None that I saw. CONDITION : Good condition for the age – I didn’t find any damage or quirks to mention. As found – I have not cleaned this at all. View & enlarge photographs to closely inspect fine details and to determine the amount of patina, and/or wear. Most older pieces by nature normally have some degree of both and, unless severe, aren’t considered damaged. I will do my best to note anything glaring or distracting.
