Aldeburgh Lobster with Chips


These little Lobster studs have a vintage Coral bead and a vintage, slightly iridescent, Mother of Pearl gaming counter - hand engraved with flowers and love birds

Chinese mother-of-pearl gaming counters probably first came to Europe in around 1700 as the inspired innovation of a sea captain or else a “supercargo” – one of the men primarily responsible for trading – of the East India Company boats when they began trading with China.

These counters are probably 1840's
