Gaskin Silver Necklace with Opals & Rock Crystals

Item Description

Quite wonderful English Arts & Crafts necklace made circa 1904 by the husband and wife team of Arthur and Georgina (Georgie) Gaskin.

Crafted in silver and opework in style, set with opals and faceted rock crystals, the necklace comprises four separate main elements culminating in a heart-shaped central section finished with a elegant drop.

Three short lengths of chain on each side connect the two central elements to a pair of matching side attachments which, in turn connect to double chains separated first by opals and finally with crystal stones.  A single length of chain attaches to the hand made toggle type fastener.

Opened out, the overall length is approximately 46 cm. The central section measure 8.5 cm from the little rock crystal to the bottom of the drop.

Lit:  A similar necklace by the Gaskins is shown on p. 430 of Der Moderne Stil (The Modern Style) by Julius Hoffmann jr.
