Rare Charles Horner Pendant Necklace
A pendant necklace from Charles Horner that we’ve not seen before.
The pendant itself has a slightly rounded rectangular outline with the visible silverwork showing a whiplash design enclosing three enamelled areas in two shades of blue and pink.
This hangs from a matching enamelled suspender and is completed with three teardrop shaped enamelled drops.
Hallmarked at Chester for the year 1909 and also impressed with the C.H maker’s mark.
Measuring a fraction below 7 cm long, including the suspender and drops, with the necklace chain a further 46 cm long.
N.B. A brooch in this same design, albeit inverted, is illustrated on p. 62 of the book by Tom J. Lawson, Charles Horner of Halifax.
