Pendant from Charles Horner*
Silver pendant that, although unmarked, is undoubtedly from the workshops of Charles Horner.
In the form of four concentric circles, the outer square-sectioned frame enclosing a repeating coiled design in rope-patterned silver wire, further decorated at intervals with little clear paste stones. The inner circle abutts another, also displaying a rope pattern, which in turn encloses a gently convex honeycomb patterned meshwork, the overall design being completed with a collet set mother of pearl plaque in the centre.
The pendant hangs on two short lengths of chain from a mother-of-pearl set suspender which attaches to the necklace chain.
A little over 6.5 cm long from the top of the suspender, with the necklace chain measuring 40 cm.
The same honeycomb pattern can be seen on another Horner pendant illustrated on page 91 of the book by Tom J. Lawson.
