Marvelous antique Victorian thistle pendant necklace. The rock crystal quartz is beautifully faceted and sparkles brightly. At 15.6g, it's relatively weighty so it looks substantial on the neck.
It hangs from its original black moire silk ribbon ribbon, which has been repaired at the top. The ribbon hangs 21", and the total length is just under 23" including the pendant. The crystal thistle is just over 1-1/4" long, by 11/16".
Please look at my pictures to see all the fine work on this piece. Very good antique condition with a few flea bites, a small chip inside one scallop at the bottom, no scratches.
