Arts & Crafts Necklace Attributed to Edward Spencer*
A very fine Arts & Crafts gilded silver necklace with alternate green agate and almandine garnet cabochon-cut stones. Each stone is contained within and separated by intricate and delicate wirework, with tiny seed pearls suspended below.
Dating from the very early 1900’s, unmarked or signed but acquired from an elderly lady who had owned it for a great many years and thought it was by the Gaskins.
Oue research however leads us to the firm opinion that this necklace was in fact designed by Edward Spencer and was almost certainly crafted at the workshops of the Artificers’ Guild.
The original chain has been slightly lengthened at some stage, either side of the old and original T-bar fastener.
