What a wonderful seal, for want of a better word, this is! We have a basket, with beautiful cannetille gold work, tested 12 k , and set with turquoise and garnets. On the bottom of the basket, is the foiled amethyst. The top of the basket handle has a bale, so the piece can be worn on a chain. This is all amazing enough, but when one opens the basket, one finds a glass bezel under which is human hair work. This piece is circa 1840, and very typical of the beautiful gold work done then The basket, counting the handle, stands 1 inch tall. This piece is a work of art!
