Victorian Micro Mosaic Pendant Necklace
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
Intricately rendered in tiny micromosaic tesserae, a colorful fine-feathered friend is comfortably nestled within a bed of roses and other flowers, in this delightful Italianate lavalière necklace dating back to the mid-to-latter-19th century and equipped on the reverse with an open display locket (currently housing the golden locks from a distant dearly departed). A rare and ravishing work of wearable art finely hand fabricated in warmly burnished 18K yellow gold. The three-piece pendant measures 2 3/4 inches, the original Victorian chain measures 16 inches.
