This silver, Persian turquoise, NATURAL red coral, green agate and lapis silver Ankh is approximately 80 years old and is AMAZING!
Measures 3 7/8 x 2 inches and weighs 19.02 grams of hallmarked sterling silver. The artist's makers mark that is stamped in the very front at the bottom is a "V" with a half moon directly below it.
All of the bezel set gems are of exceptional quality and measure as follows, top to bottom;
Round turquoise cabochon - 10.5 mm
Center red coral - 11 x 12 mm
Green agates - 9 x 8 mm (2)
Lapis - 8.5 x 11.5 mm
Lower coral - 10 x 12 mm
Small lower turquoise stones - 7 mm each (2)
I added the sterling silver bail, it is not old. I've searched for a vintage bail that will clasp on to the hole created for this piece, but cannot find one that does not detract from this hand-made beauty.
The attention to detail in the silver work is stunning. This has never been polished to preserve the outstanding patina crafted by age.
