This very early piece is in a word Stunning. Large oval shape with lightly etched borders and a gorgeous raised detail portrait in the center. Substantial sterling weight of 20 grams. It has a very rare c clasp pin close as seen in the photographs and also has a attached bale for necklace wearing option. It is vermeil color silver with possible gold content denoted by symbol marking on the back.In excellent condition. A few tiny flea bites that only add to it's character and no wear. Sadly I can not make out the full markings. The sunken 925 in a oval cartouche is clear, the square cartouche next to it has a well defined star symbol then it gets to hard for me to read. Possible says 135 and TV. The star mark often represents gold content. My search for town and maker had to end when I was on hour three of looking. This wonderful piece is even better looking in person and will not disappoint.
Measures 1 7/8'L and 1/2'W.

MUSAE (Mousai). The Muses, according to the earliest writers, were the inspiring goddesses of song, and, according to later noticus, divinities presiding over the different kinds of poetry, and over the arts and sciences. They were originally regarded as the nymphs of inspiring wells, near which they were worshipped, and bore different names in different places, until the Thraco-Boeotian worship of the nine Muses spread from Boeotia over other parts of Greece, and ultimately became generally established.
