Arts & Crafts Galleon Necklace*

Item Description

English Arts & Crafts silver and enamel galleon necklace that’s very special.

Featuring an ornately crafted and very three-dimensional galleon with a billowing sail, steeply raked bowsprit and pennants flying from the top of the masts, sailing on a blue-green enamelled sea beneath a mother-of-pearl crescent moon.

At the foot hangs an oval drop set with a sea green cabochon, possibly an emerald matrix.

The chainwork is all original and is embellished with a further pair of green matrix cabochons, one on each side of the cross chain that supports the moon.

Fitted with a typically hand-made Arts & Crafts ‘S’ type fastener, the necklace chain has a length of 42 cm including the cross piece.

The galleon measures a fraction below 6 cm to the bottom of the drop.

We can find no marks but wouldn’t be at all surprised if this necklace originated from one of the Guilds.

N.B. The photographs on our original listing appeared to show a fine hairline towards the bottom of the enamel which on closer examination turned out to be just an actual trapped hair! This has now been removed and the necklace re-photographed – our apologies for the error.
