Some time ago we were fortunate enough to find and then sell the matching pin to this necklace. The pin had the Charles Horner mark whereas this one does not but it is clearly his design. Here we have a winged Egyptian scarab in shades of blue grading down to a limey green.
Charles Horner pieces are always much sought after and highly collectible. He was perhaps one of the best known designers for Liberty's, a London department that represented some of the finest artist's/artisans of the period.
This piece dates to the turn of the century, circa 1905. It is in excellent antique condition with no damage to the enamel. The bottom somewhat triangular shaped dangle hangs from winged scarab which in turns hangs from a round enameled piece. The pendant itself drops 2-1/4" ( from the enamel disk) and measures 1-3/4" in width from wing tip to wing tip.
The chain is 16". which has a spring ring clasp which is marked for sterling.
The pendant is unmarked but does test for sterling silver grade content (at least 925/1000 parts silver).
