Silver and Amberoid Pendant Necklace
Arts & Crafts pendant necklace fashioned from silver into an openwork double-sided design of heart-shaped leaves, tendrils and berries affixed to the top part of a randomly shaped and faceted piece of cherry red amberoid.
This is an unusual and charal piece which hangs from a little suspender in the form of three silver balls. This is attached via a pair of fixed rings to the necklace chain.
By an unknown maker but well made and with a length of 7.5 cm from the top of the suspender.
The chain is 50 cm long.
N.B. Amberoid, which we’ve not come across before, is evidently a synthetic product somewhat similar to Bakelite which imitates the look of amber, and is made by compressing various resins at high temperature. It was first produced between 1895 and 1900.
