14K Gold Mounted Antique Chinese Carved M. Gaming / Gambling Token Pendant.These antique Chinese gaming tokens are true works of art in miniature. This wonderful example is beautifully and very finely carved and features a figural roundel with a Chinese man holding a vessel in one hand as he approaches a structure, floral-and-foliate sprigs on each side of the roundel and a strikingly intricate double border of stylized flowers, vines and leaves outside a rhythmic geometric inner border. The other side is identical with the exception of an empty roundel, perhaps where a monetary denomination would have been carved, and all backgrounds are hatched or cross-hatched. The mother-of-pearl is lustrous and iridescent, and the token is mounted in a marked "14k P" yellow gold frame with an "IGNE" maker's mark, sturdy corner prongs and a large mechanical bail with a 5.5 x 3.4-mm opening.
In excellent condition, the pendant tests positive for 14k gold, measures 1 3/4-inches overall top-to-bottom, 1 1/8-inches wide and weighs 7.1 grams.
