When it comes to Victorian era jewelry, even the costume pieces look 'important'. They were made in a way that you'd think a Queen was going to be wearing it.
This old Victorian era necklace looks important with a pendant that features the portrait of a beautiful woman. She seems to have some hand-painted accents over transferware on porcelain. She's framed in gilded brass with white enamel and carnelian beads. The back of the pendant is gilded brass with an ornate design.
Pendant measures 1 3/4 by 2 inches. It's 1/2 inch thick. It hangs from the original chain which measures 18 inches around. The chain has carnelian beads alternating with gilded brass 'bowties'. Original spring ring clasp works securely.
We've left the patina unpolished showing minimal signs of age / tarnish / wear. There's nothing notable to distract from this very important-looking piece of jewelry that even a Queen could wear.
Excellent antique condition. Circa 1910.
