    Oh my god. I just spent the last hour searching for a match. How did you find these?

    Thank you for posting these!

    The one above has date given as "1930s" when it's clearly new-ish. Caveat emptor.

    How old should I say mine is, do you think? Midcentury, styled after Qing Dynasty repousse work?

    I don't have expertise here but yours does appear to be a tad older because of the finding. Post-World War II, I would think, but someone else more knowledgable sure to come by. If resale your objective, do know that value impacted by missing dangle.

    Pretty necklace Barn. Yours looks 1980s to me, but I could be wrong.
    Forget about dynasties, that sounds a bit presumptuous in this case. I would use words like like 'traditional Chinese flower basket necklace'.
