The 2-3/4" x 2" x 3/4" lion is attached to a round snake chain with a hook clasp. The necklace is adjustable to 22".
On the back is signed plaque.
The design is referenced in the book Inside the Jewelry Box by Ann Mitchell Pitman.
Condition: there are a couple of dark spots on the snake chain; the links that attach the pendant and the chain are a bit tarnished; no wear to the lion, any dark spots are reflections.
