Amy Sandheim attr. Brooch Pendant*
Arts & Crafts silver pendant and/or brooch, unmarked but we feel sure it’s by Amy Sandheim as it certainly shows all the characteristics of work by her.
An openwork design that is somewhere between square and circular in outline, with vine leaves and bunches of grapes framed by four curved abalone plaques set in silver surrounds, each one separated by an amazonite cabochon.
Four foil backed moonstones are set, one between each pair of leaves and in the centre is a large amethyst cabochon, the points of the grape bunches acting as claws.
The pleasing colour combination works very well and the whole effect is pure Arts & Crafts.
If required to be used as a brooch, the chain simply detaches via the ring at the back of the top of the pendant.
Circa 1930, the diameter is 5.5 cm and the silver chain measures 61 cm.
