Cinnabar Cat and Enamel Necklace
stock no. 2352
Annette has been collecting cinnabar for many years and most pieces are from the 1940s - 1950s and can therefore be easily distinguished from what is made today.
This quirky jewellery piece certainly is a statement with the cat being the focal point. Be bold and fabulous with these beautifully carved old special cinnabar beads that have been hand carved, with cloisonne and enamel inlay work.
Cloisonne is an ancient metalwork technique that incorporates the use of colour via enamel. Although the word cloisonne derives from the french, the technique originates from the east.
The necklace measures 57cm in length with the carved cinnabar cat being 8cm tall and the base measures 3.2cm in width.Returns policy
