This antique, 18 karat gold French Architectural Revival Urn pendant is circa 1860. It is a sculptural piece on the level of Castellani ( 1814-1930). The gold work is superb with fine cannetille on the urn and bail. The first I have offered in 35 years of this level of excellence and bold proportions.
It is a working "bottle" with a removable stopper and an urn that opens to reveal an original glass covered compartment. It measures 2 1/2 inches long x 3/4 inches across and weighs 17.8 grams The patina is rich and beautiful created by the passage of over 150 years.
It retains a maker's mark as seen in the photos. Condition is superb. Rare, unique and wonderful. Beautiful worn on a long black cord, or gold chain.
France, circa 1860
