Murrle Bennett Silver Pendant Necklace
Art Nouveau pendant necklace from Murrle Bennett crafted in silver with a real Liberty of London look about it.
The shaped outline encloses a hammered background to a detail of four open long-stemmed flowers enamelled in blue.
At top centre is an upright oval mother-of-pearl plaque set in a gold surround and at the foot a pearl drop is suspended on a gold ring.
The chainwork is all original throughout, the pendant hanging on two pairs of chains from matching enamelled side attachments which connect to the remainder of the necklace chain.
Marked on the back for 950 silver, a slightly purer grade than sterling, and also impressed with the MBCo maker’s mark.
Opened out, the necklace is between 42 and 43 cm long overall and the chain is fitted with a toggle fastener.
