Extra Large Antique Carved Coral Pendant / Necklace in Silver Mount
By far this is one of the largest hand carved natural coral rose that I have had. I have taken quite a bit of time looking around the internet and I simply cannot find another piece of this size. So many woman have coral rose carved earrings so perhaps this would be a beautiful match to a pair you own...
The coral is a beautiful shade of salmon ~ light orange. The photos are spot on in terms of color. The large blooming coral rose is set in a silver mount that has tested for 900. It dangles from an open filigree bail which is very pretty. The coral is antique and was harvested in the 19th Century. The chain came with the coral piece. It is sterling silver and marked Sterling on the pull back spring ring. It is a long delicate chain which measures 24" long. You may choose to put this on a shorter chain if you feel it is too long however I will include this with the sale.
The Coral... It was masterfully carved and measures 1" x 7/8" across x 5/8" deep. It weighs 10.5 grams, without the chain. It is just completely impressive...
Excellent antique condition. One leaf has a bit of unevenness but was likely done in production. Natural coral which is Circa 1880, Victorian period. Chain is Deco period circa 1940. Likely Italian in origin. Questions are always welcome and encouraged.
