Subject:Pendant Symbol Identification

Hello, I bought this pendant in a vintage shop and I don't know what it says? Can someone please help me with the interpretation?

Thank you so much!!

Looks like your pendant may be a recycled mahjong tile. The character is 'East' ('dong' in mandarin). It's one of the 'wind' tiles.

Best regards,

Bill H.

The character is East 東, but judging from the way it was written, it was done by someone without any skill in writing Chinese characters. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
