Read somewhere that the round bottom might be a replica of an old Chinese. Horrible pics but in person under a loupe there is much detail. Working on better pics. Any input

@spring, when you use the same filename on pics, it over-writes them on all previous threads. In this way, you've got a mishmash of pics on this thread and your other one.

Sorry I'm still figuring out how to navigate this forum. Hence the double posts/images. Good thing is there all of the same item. Trying to identify what's etched in gold at the bottoms of my headless turtle.

Ok, that explains a few things, thanks Spence and Spring444. Now I see what he is trying to picture here... I'm not too sure if this has any design; it looks more like a small clasp to hold the turtle pendant. Now also what you could be seeing is a marking of some kind of a possible fineness wether a karat gold or sterling silver (925). Of course, whoever made this could very well have engraved a very tiny motif of a dragon It is a very interesting little pendant you have there.
