Rare and very beautiful early 20th Century chatelaine pendant/brooch in 14K gold by the Parenti Sisters features three rolo chains including two swags and an array of cultured pearls ranging from just under 5-mm to 7-mm in diameter on a sculptural, bright yellow gold body. The floral motif of this wonderful vintage pendant/brooch is highly naturalistic and three-dimensional with nicely carved, domed flower petals, three of which are gracefully curled at their tips, and seed-like dots of gold encircling the pearl centers. Elegant, leafy scrolls top the flower blossoms in an airy configuration that, with the swags and pearl drops at the bottom, create an outstanding overall balance, rhythm and texture. There is a pinback with safety clasp, a hook for suspending from a chain and an applied rectangular tag impressed "Parenti 14K". Well known for their highly collectible silver jewelry, it is widely believed that the Parenti's only made gold jewelry on a special order basis. In excellent vintage condition, measures 2 5/8-inches north-south, 2 1/16-inches east-west and weighs 21.9 grams total.
