A fabulous piece of Victorian Italian pietra dura; the only one like it I have ever seen!

The large oval black marble or slate pendant is inlaid with segments of hand cut semi-precious stones, forming a cross. The stones appear to be mainly agates of various colours and malachite. The workmanship is extremely good and the cross stands out spectacularly against the jet black base.

I believe this piece would have been brought back from 19th century Italy by a Victorian visitor on a 'Grand Tour' of Europe.

Large metal jump ring/loop to top for wear on a chain.

Measurements: 44mm by 35mm (NOT including the loop); 56mm drop length from top of loop.

Weight: 20.43gms.

In good antique condition; please view all the images to appreciate this rare antique pendant.
