Australian Carved Stone and Opal Pendant
Hand carved stone pendant from Australia made in the Arts & Crafts tradition.
An Art Nouveau inspired theme of leaves, an open flower and two dragonflies with opal wings alighting on the foliage, all edged by an inset narrow oval gold line.
Accented with further gold detail, lapis petals to the flower and a lapis cabochon on the silver ring above the gold bale.
A great deal of work has gone into the crafting of this pendant with much thought even going into the back which shows a riveted and inlaid silver and gold design spreading downwards from the top.
A unique, one-off piece showcasing wonderful craftsmanship and complete with its own little snakeskin pouch with an opal set in the button.
Difficult to date precisely but we reckon it to have been made circa the 1930's or 40's.
Measuring a touch over 5.5 cm in length including the lapis cabochon. The silver necklace chain is 50 cm long.
