Antique Chinese Hair Ornament with Enameled Frog and Engraved Floral Design (#18-051)


This Qing dynasty Chinese hair ornament or pin has a flat long portion with a carved design of a lotus and other flowers. At the top is a modelled frog or toad, which clutches a braided silver ring in it’s mouth, perhaps representing a coin. A good portion of the enameling has worn off the frog. Unmarked but of coin silver or better. The little frog is quite charming.
