Magnificent dimensional carved face mask in marbled green hard stone. Primitive tribal characteristic to it. Colors of the mossy-like marbled stone are light, medium, and dark greens with a hint of brown. The incredible color mix gives it a 'just discovered in the forest' kind of look. The ornate 14k gold frame is designed to come around the sides of the face and gives the impression of a bejeweled ear lobe. As well as holding the large stone in place. The antiqued finish adds to the centuries old feel of the piece. The bale is ornate and widens out to support the weight of the pendant suitable for a heavy chain or neck wire.
This extraordinary pendant measures 2 3/4" long and 2 1/8" wide, with a 3/4" rise for the 3D quality. From a recent estate of mid century pieces of a well traveled lady, research indicates this was more than likely acquired upon a visit to Mexico. Circa 1970's.
Excellent vintage condition. Stamped in several places, at the bottom as pictured, along with the more letters, illegible, but probably the maker's. More 14k stamps are found between the 1:00 to 2:00 position and the 8:00, you have to very close, but are there.
A fabulous addition to your fine jewelry collection. Wearing this is certain to get a few jaws to drop and many compliments.
