Chinese Antique Gaming Counters Collection

80.00

This collection of antique Chinese mother of pearl gambling chips date from the 1850's.  Each is carved and pierced from natural abalone shell and etched with charming designs.  The etched designs appear on both sides of each piece.  Gold 14k filled chains, beads and earring wires are added.  These gambling chips were made for export to England and other foreign destinations and only for the very wealthiest patrons. Some were personalized to match the Chinese porcelain dinnerware also smuggled out by sea captains.

Each necklace with a round chip has a 20" gold filled chain.  The rectangular pendant has a 18 1/2" chain adjustable to 20.5".  The earrings are approximately 2" long.
