Vintage Hand Carved 10K Gold & Orange Coral Pendant - Greek/Roman God
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1950 or so
ITEM: The pendant I am offering is from Art's personal collection - he gifted it to his wife a long, long , LONG, time ago. Now, Mary is ready to let it go so it can find a new home! Made of orange coral, the pendant is incredibly well cut into the face of a Greek or Roman God, complete with a lot of curlicues and a shell at the bottom. Because of the nature of design and the fact that coral is gathered from the sea, the God is most likely Neptune or Poseidon.
CONDITION: Very nice with a light clean needed. The accompanying chain is just a gold tone metal chain that Art found - Mary kept the gold chain the pendant was suspended from.
METAL CONTENT: The top bale/jump ring tests at 10K gold but Art says that the piece was always hung from a 14K gold chain so he's of the opinion the top metal is also 14K.
HALLMARKS: None. Metal was gently acid tested for content.
SIZE: From top of coral to bottom measures 1-1/4"; width is 3/8" at the widest point.
WEIGHT: 4.4 grams along with the chain.
FINAL COMMENTS: Adorable and I do hope the detail of the piece shows up in my pictures.
