A vintage Chinese silver chain with adorable Foo dogs, a lion and fish. This is a lovely 9" long chain with various 3 dimensional amulets or charms. Perhaps worn on clothing or as hair decoration. At the top is a lion with plums or flowers, followed by a 1" charm with 2 foo dogs with a ball. Hanging from this charm are 3 chains ending with movable sectioned fish. Two of the fish each have a butterfly for the tail fin.
The silver cleaned nicely and could be sterling but it is not marked. It is very light weight.
Purchased in 1990 on a trip to China with stops in Beijing and Xian.
