Flying Bat Pendant*
Art Nouveau era silver pendant in the form of a bat with outspread wings.
Set with an oval opal in the centre of its body and no less that twelve further opals on the wings, which are also embellished with seed pearls and tiny rubies on the leading edges.
The eyes too are set with rubies, even tinier than those on the wings.
Looking at the back, it seems that this pendant was once a clip but the conversion has been sympathetically done and it works extremely well as a pendant.
Approximately 3 cm wide from wingtip to wingtip and with a total length of 48 cm when opened out.
