This is a Lovely Early Turn of the Century Silhouette Pendant Necklace. The necklace features a 2 1/2” x 2” oval, ivory color celluloid pendant. The pendant is overlaid with a black silhouette of a woman in the center of an Art Nouveau Black Frame. The pendant is attached to the ribbon with an ornate silver color metal finding. The ribbon feels like silk.
The necklace features a self-adjusting celluloid square which allows you to adjust the necklace for a perfect custom length.
During Victorian times, people would have silhouettes done of themselves and then have silhouette jewelry made. This necklace could also be called a “mourning” piece of jewelry.
This Beautiful Silhouette Necklace is quite unique. I've not seen another like it.
Measurements: The ribbon length is 30” long and can be adjusted to shorter lengths if desired.
Age: Early 1900’s.
