ITALIAN Sterling Silver, Glass Pearl & Cornelian Shell Cameo Pin/Pendant Combo!
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST!
Ask any dealer and they will say they want to move items so that they can go out and buy MORE. I’m just the same, I’ve got an itch to buy that CONSTANTLY needs scratching. Sometimes I think I want to buy more than sell but as my father keeps telling me :you’re a dealer, Rob, not a collector.” So on that note, and with the upcoming holiday season looming, I am going to turn over some old inventory to make room for new AND if you see this message at the top of my listings, I am pricing the offering at my rock bottom (original asking price when first listed is shown), let it go, no regrets price. No offers – no dickering – just a price where I make a little profit so I can go shopping for bigger, better and fresh!
So up for offer now….
AGE: C.1950 or so
ITEM: From Italy comes this lovely "souvenir" Cornelian Shell cameo pin/pendant! In silver gilt, the cameo features a lady - profile left at the center and a border of glass pearls. Safety catch at the back to hold the pin in place as well as a small loop bale for wearing the piece as a pendant necklace.
CONDITION: The cameo is perfect, not true artisan quality when it comes to carving but still very nice. Some of the pearls do show a bit of nacre loss to the top but I can actually only spot this under a 10X loupe. Gilt covering the silver is very pale but most of the overlay is present (at the back).
METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver with a gold wash.
HALLMARKS: ITALY 925 along with a makers mark.
SIZE: Frame measures 1-9/16" x 1-1/4".
WEIGHT: 8.5 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready to be worn once more!
