Necklace from Murrle Bennett*
Silver necklace with a finely hammered finish crafted in three linked sections, each set with a faceted amethyst.
With a very distinctive Secessionist look about the design, the two main upper components are embellished with little silver bosses and a small pearl where they meet.
The upright oval amethyst in the drop below adds a perfectly balanced finish to the overall design.
As is usual with many of the better Murrle Bennett pieces, the stones are all set in gold mounts and, pleasingly, the necklace is complete with its original chain which features a toggle type fastener.
Late 1800’s to very early 1900’s and 6 cm. long with the necklace chain measuring 51 cm.
Marked verso for 950 silver and also with a partially rubbed MBCo maker’s mark.
