This is another great find from my trip to Gettysburg, PA. It is a pendant made from gutta percha, dating from the mid 19th Century.
The pendant is 2 1/2" long and 1 1/2" wide. It has an opening at the top for you to attach a chain or ribbon. There is a raised scroll design beneath the opening. There are also more molded designs around the sides and at the bottom.
The center has a one inch long oval opening, into which someone has inserted a piece of woven brown hair. The oval is trimmed with a gold filled twisted bezel. Perhaps this is a memorial piece from a Civil War soldier?
The pendant has a weight of 7.9 grams and is in fine antique condition.
