Large Victorian Carved Mother of Pearl Cameo Necklace w/ Silver Plate Setting & Chain
The cameo alone measures 1.25" x 1.625". The cameo and its setting measure 2.125" x 2.875". The necklace chain measures 40" in total length and can be worn doubled around the neck though there is no clasp. Each 'caterpillar' link is .5" long and the larger decorative links are 1" long x .5" wide.
Condition: There is wear to the silver plate that I find quite acceptable - even desirable - in a piece of this age. There is some green patina on the back of the large links in the chain most notable near the tiny holes that are part of the hollow construction on the back side.
This very long and large pendant necklace is what I call a "belly beater", but is easily worn shorter by doubling the chain. I speculate that it could have once been a belt that was converted into a necklace. The mother of pearl cameo is exceptionally fine.
