Pendant by Child & Child*
Silver gilt pendant enamelled with a depiction of Perseus with the head of Medusa, the culmination of a fascinating if somewhat gruesome Greek mythological tale.
A convex upright oval with a scalloped outline, the main image, in blue shading to almost violet, is framed within an ornately patterned green enamelled border.
Crafted by the highly regarded London jewellery makers Child & Child who were in business between the years 1880 and 1915, and showing their impressed mark on the back.
The enamelled pendant itselt measures 5 cm in length with the fixed ring and the bale adding just under another cm.
On a substantial silver gilt chain measuring approximately 62 cm.
