This beautiful sterling silver pendant is a faithful depiction of the 17th century Flemish painting Kermasse Flamande (Village Festival) by David Teniers II aka David the Younger. He was a Flemish painter, print maker, draughtsman, miniaturist painter, copyist and art curator; an extremely versatile artist known for his prolific output. He was born December 15, 1610 in Antwerp, Belgium and died April 25, 1690 in Brussels, Belgium.
This pendant is labeled Teniers Kermasse Flamande below the image. There are no hallmarks but the metal tests positive for silver content of sterling grade.
This pendant weighs 22.61 gr. It measures 1.875" x 2.375", excluding bail.
Condition is good.
I believe that this is a Victorian period homage to the original 17th century painting.
