Mid 20th Century "Seek Pleasure" Disc Pendant in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A large, mid-twentieth-century charm, modeled in 14k yellow gold and decorated with Chinese characters that direct the wearer (or the viewer) to "seek pleasure." These are traditional characters— they are rendered in a manner that suggests brush strokes, and the handwriting of an individual. The texture and high polish of these characters, atop the contrasting, rich, matte, textured field behind them makes this charm especially winning! It is a striking, weighty piece and it makes a significant statment in wear. Marked 14k for purity.
c. 1950 - 1960
