Austro-Hungarian Silver Gilt Paste Seed Pearl Necklace
This most lovely of necklaces is intricate like most Austro-Hungarian pieces. The drop consists of three elements. At the top is a roundel set with the darkest blue pastes and ornamented with flowers. Then comes the most lavishly embellished pendant, slightly domed and ornamented with a magnificent, raised bezel set paste. Around it are tiny seed pearls and then tiny blue pastes. Above is further decoration with flowers and pastes. The necklace is finished with a teardrop shaped pendant also with pastes.
One of the very pleasing features of this necklace is that the chain itself is decorated along its length. Also a particular feature of Austro-Hungarian pieces is the beautifully engraved back.
The necklace closes with a ring clasp. On a tiny adjacent ring is the dogs head and the letter P which I believe is for the town of Pest. This wonderful necklace is in excellent antique condition. It will arrive in a gift box.
