This Archaeological 15 karat /pendant brooch is circa 1880. The design and gold work distinguishes this beautifully designed work by a master craftsman. It has a gold bail at the top where a chain or cord can be attached and is covered with fine rope twist gold decoration. It supports a gold cylinder with rams heads at each end. Gold ribbon formations attach the bottom element which is a concave panel, edged by gold balls and centered with a sculptural relief of a face. Rope twist decorations with delicate wire work, cover the entire composition. The reverse has a locket compartment with a removable bezel set glass.

This period of design had gifted jewelers that used the fine Neo-classical styles incorporating filigree and granulation. A few of the most famous are Fortunato, Brogden, Robert Philips and Carlo Giuliano. This piece could rival their works of art.

It can be worn with a long cord or chain, or could be worn as a brooch. The size is bold and the details are crisp.

The gold has a rich, beautiful yellow gold patina. It measures a very bold 3 1/4 inches long X 2 1/8th inches across. It weighs approximately 24.6 dwts. or 38.25 grams.
The condition is as remarkable as the design.
England, circa 1880
