From the 1800's, this superb Victorian Pendant Necklace features an absolutely amazing & very 3-dimensional hand-carved & extra-LARGE 2.75" Rose Blossoms pendant ! Skillfully carved with amazing & painstaking detail, it has a large & sumptuous fully blooming Rose with tons of tender petals in a self-embrace as they swirl into its delicately carved center. So grand & plump, this is what is called a "Cabbage Rose" ! To the upper right is a sumptuous Rosebud, all amid a luxurious spray of 3-D Leaves & another Rosebud ! --Wow !! Just breath-taking !
This glorious piece is particularly rare, extremely hard-to-find ! You seldom come across an Ivory carving so large, plush and carved in such magnificent detail. A true example of brilliant hand-carving Artistry !
This stunning Victorian Pendant measures a huge 2.75" at its widest point, and is hung on a necklace of dainty 4mm & 2mm carved Ivory beads with a screw style Ivory Clasp. The entire necklace, with a portion of the top edge of the pendant included, is 17.5" in length.
Well cared for through well over a century of existence, it is in Excellent Antique Condition, with a hard to detect chipped leaf edge, and leaf tip, clearly very old, as it is the same deep, buttery age patina as the rest of the carving ! Definitely not a detraction as is quite evident by the pictures.
And since the ban on new Ivories over 25 years ago, Ivory is a non-replenishable material, so what currently exists is all there is---and is exactly why vintage & antique Ivory is so valuable today...
Note: Ivory cannot be shipped internationally. California legislation prevents California residents from buying or selling ivory.
Will make a wonderful authentic Victorian Ivory Gift she's sure to treasure forever---or a fabulous addition to any Antique Jewelry Collection.
