Necklace by Mr & Mrs Arthur Gaskin
Silver Arts & Crafts necklace comprising several individual components all connected by ornate chainwork.
Openwork in style and featuring the typically recognisable Gaskin tiny leaves, the necklace is set with a mix of turquoise and chrysoprase stones and mother-of-pearl, with a prominent teardrop shaped mother-of-pearl drop at the foot.
Fitted with a toggle type fastener and with a fully opened out length of approximately 38 cms.
A fairly early example of the Gaskin’s craftsmanship, probably dating from circa 1900.
This necklace was acquired in its original leather covered fitted case which has most definitely seen better days. But we feel that it is part of its history and a definite asset, bearing as it does the Gaskin name inside the lid. However, a new, modern box can be supplied if preferred
