Silver, Turquoise and Mother-of-Pearl Necklace
Unusual and extremely stylish silver necklace with two offset and slightly different sized pendants suspended below a shaped crossbar decorated with little turquoise cabochons.
The teardrop-shaped pendants consist of well contoured mother-of-pearl plaques set into silver mounts which are suspended on a single link inside an outer frame set all around with evenly coloured turquoise stones. The design allows movement of the mother-of-pearl centres inside the oval frames.
No maker’s mark but very well made, with the bar somewhat like a stylised two-headed snake giving the necklace a nod towards the Egyptian revival style.
The chainwork is original and has a squared barrel type fastener.
Just the merest touch over 7 cm from the top of the bar to the bottom of the largest pendant, with the necklace chain measuring 43 cm.
