Genuine antique lapis blue Ming Dynasty human figure shard, wrapped in a band of silver plated metal. It is from the Ming dynasty, which lasted in China from 1368 to 1644. True Ming Dynasty antique shards are always blue and white and very hard to come by.The dimensions are about 1-1/2" by 1 " and this shard can be worn as is on a silver chain, or incorporated into a necklace.SOME VERY IMPORTANT HISTORY AND INFORMATION FOR OUR BUYERS:The Communist regime in China began with Mao Tse Tung who instituted something he called" The Cultural Revolution" during the 1960's - 1970's. The effect of this revolution was similar to the destruction of priceless archeological artifacts by the Taliban in Afghanistan. Among the artifacts destroyed in China were countless irreplaceable antique porcelain objects such as vases and plates.These broken pottery fragments were saved by the Chinese at the end of the "Cultural Revolution", and the beginning of the new Chinese political era ( during the 1980's ) . These broken pottery "shards" were salvaged and reworked or recycled into art objects ranging from pendant size as you see here to table top ornaments. You are actually purchasing fragments of broken teapots, dishes or bowls.These are genuine ANTIQUES.Blue and white porcelain shards are from the Ming Dynasty (1368 to 1644) and the multi colored shards are from the Ch'ing Dynasty (1644\u20131912 )\u25c9 PLEASE NOTE: The limited quantity of TRUE ANTIQUE shards prompted modern factories to manufacture imitations. The new shards looks similar but there are subtle differences vs. the true antiques.\u25c9 Many of the very inexpensive shards for sale online are CURRENTLY being painted on old pottery and then exported. Be sure of what you are purchasing and never be afraid to ask for documentation proving the authenticity.***All the shards that Eureka Eureka sells are truly genuine antiques and we have the certificates of authenticity from the Chinese government to prove it.Joel was in Hong Kong multiple times during the 1980's and insisted on obtaining the certificates of authenticity which we can provide upon request.****\u2764I'm happy to discuss a custom necklace created around this shard if you are interested and time permitting .\u2764**If you'd like to see a few examples of an antique focal pendant hand knotted beaded necklace that I have designed please check my other Etsy shop www.ForeverInStyle., ming pendant
