Vintage STERLING SILVER, Enamel & Rhinestone Pendant Necklace - Modern Madonna
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1960 or so
ITEM: Found with all the old store stock items I currently have listed, here's a pendant necklace featuring a lengthy chain of silver and an enamel pendant set in the same metal. The image in the pendant is of a stylized madonna, very young, very blonde and just a bit Nordic looking. The image itself is a transfer that has been fired onto the enamel - the golden halo has been hand painted onto the dark blue background. White rhinestones add a touch of sparkle to the setting. Both pieces, I believe, have a heavy rhodium overlay.
CONDITION: Chain is perfect. Pendant tabs at the back have a bit of the rhodium overlay missing; this most likely happened when the enamel pendant was put into the setting.
METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: On the chain, 925; on the pendant, nothing that I can spot. I am guessing that the two pieces are original to each other.
SIZE: Length of the chain is 19". Pendant measures 2-1/16" long from top of bale to bottom width is 1-1/16".
WEIGHT: 20 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Just adorable!
