ANTIQUE VICTORIAN 14K Gold & Red Enamel Pendant - French Fleur de Lis
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: What was once a pin is now a pendant! I found this piece with just the pinstem remaining - the clasp had long ago broken off. When I asked my jeweler to fix he replied "no" because it would be a hard fix so instead I decided on a simple one - turn the pin into a pendant. There is now an added bale to the back through which a thick or thing chain can be placed. Lovely Fleur de Lis design with a touch of repousse work and a bit of red enamel over a guilloche (engine turned) background.
CONDITION: Very nice with no dents or dings.
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: Well, the hallmark was on the back pinstem but since I removed it there is no marking on the pin. Also my jeweler would not strike the back with a new 14K hallmark as this would most likely damage the red enamel. So metal has been acid tested for content and I stand behind the content of this piece.
SIZE: A little over 1" long x 15/16" wide.
WEIGHT: 2.6 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Just add a chain (mine is for display purposes only).
