An outstanding vintage enameled silver Chinese butterfly in excellent condition. It would make a wonderful necklace focal with colored silk cord. It measures 2 1/16 by 2 3/4 by 3/8ths thick. The enamel is in excellent condition with only minor wear. It weighs 34 grams and tests at about 800 to 900 silver. Unfortunately the photos make the colors and background look rather faded but it is an exquisitely colored piece. It's a truly stellar pendant, the best of Chinese enameling!

I will send an invoice with your package on request, otherwise I'll assume you don't need one.
I ship most items via priority mail as it's much quicker and more safe. All items are shipped insured. Please contact me with any questions or concerns!
I mail within 72 hours of receiving the order. I try to get the shipment out on the same day or next day if I can. Please contact me if you need your item within a certain time period.
I accept Paypal and Direct Checkout for major credit cards. The payment option defaults to credit cards so if you get the credit card information page and prefer Paypal, just hit the back browser and click on Paypal for payment method.
Returns & exchanges
*IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ! If you have any concerns about suitability/fit for the item you purchase, please purchase with Paypal. Paypal allows me to issue a refund of the purchase price minus shipping. On credit card orders if you return the item, Etsy won't let me cancel the sale unless I give a full refund. This means returning the shipping money that has been used to ship the item to you. So I lose one way or the other, and for all sales that occur on or after August 1st 2017 my policy is to charge credit card returns for the amount Etsy withholds. I am so very sorry to have to institute this policy but I can't afford to cover those losses, especially on high end items. It's a 5% restocking fee. Thank you for understanding.
I accept returns regardless of the reason for the return. Please contact me within 7 days from the date of delivery, and keep all of the packaging as it makes it easier to return. The item must be returned in the condition it was received in and within 14 business days of the date the item was delivered. It's best to send it back insured, as the sender assumes responsibility for the package. If I send something to you and it doesn't reach you, I'm fully responsible for the loss of the item and would reimburse my customer, and it works the other way when a customer returns - the responsibility for insuring is with the person who mails the item. I appreciate your understanding on this!
I am happy to arrange a layaway plan for any item over $75. I can spread the payments over a 30 to 60 day period. Those are my terms in general, and I will always work with my customers if you need more time. Each layaway plan is tailored to the person making the purchase. I require a non-refundable good faith down payment of 15% to 20%. Please contact me for more information!
Regarding reserved items - If you ask for a reserve, I will hold the item for 24 hours. I need to know when you plan on purchasing at the time you reserve the item. If I don't hear from you within twenty four hours, I will assume you don't want the item and will take the reserve off. If a customer repeatedly reserves and doesn't contact me, I will no longer be able to reserve anything for that customer. Thank you for understanding.
