Charming octagonal Celluloid Pendant with Angel Medallion on Golden Brass Chain with Dog Clip.
Pendant features a matching cream color bead at the top through which passes a large brass ring. A matching brass chain with textured oval links attaches to the ring. Its dog clip can easily be detached from the pendant and clipped to another pendant. The pendant features a central medallion that show an angel leaning on a fence looking as if he's contemplating the world. Sprays of berries and lilies of the valley (a symbol of good luck and prosperity) curve around him. The image is in relief and very detailed, and appears to be cast in pewter. An etched circle surrounds the medallion.
The pendant measures 2-1/4" across by 3" tall by a scant 1/4" thick (5.8 x 7.5 cm x 5 mm).
The chain is 27-1/2" and slips easily over the head. The dog clip adds another 5/8".
Condition is very good. The surface of the pendant is crackled, which makes a lovely, subtle pattern, and I don't know whether this is from age or part of the design. There is some staining on the reverse side, possibly nicotine, and I have not attempted to deep clean it.
All in all, it's a pretty piece with a versatile chain.
Signed with an R on the medallion.
Age: c. 1950
