COMMENTS: Circa late 1800's. Classic lavaliere pendant with lovely floral detail. The main focal point of this pendant is the rich purple paste which can easily be mistaken for an amethyst. There are seed pearls throughout the pendants as well as a freshwater pearl hanging from the bottom. One of the larger, and more beautiful lavalieres I have seen in a while! Pictured as received from a local estate. Very good estate condition with minimal wear indicative of age. Items will be cleaned but natural patina will be preserved if applicable. Polishing to near new is always FREE upon request!
