Antique Victorian onyx pendant with cherub and lyre. This romantic, sentimental piece features a darling cherub (or angel, cupid, or putto) playing a lyre, surrounded by colorful garlands of flowers tied with a ribbon. Hand painted on porcelain, the painting is beautifully rendered in a pleasing palette. The framing of 14k gold and smooth black onyx are the perfect contrast to the delicate details.

The pendant measures 2" including the gold bail and it is 1-1/8" at widest. It has a nice weight at 19.0g. There are a few small flaws on the onyx, seen in the close-up photo, and no enamel loss. The gold is unmarked but has been acid-tested.
