Luca Razza's 1970s vintage astrology or zodiac line is perhaps his most well known work. Expertly molded in resin to resemble natural materials, the symbols were bold statements of one's astrological sign.
The pendant necklace presented, sometimes referred to as a mermaid, is actually Razza's interpretation of the sign of Virgo -- the virgin maiden. It is one of Razza's most hard to find signs in the zodiac series. Adorned with flowing locks of golden hair and swathed in draped material at bust, the pendant features extraordinary facial and décolletage details in fine resin casting, replete with shadings and patina. The pendant is suspended by bilateral neck chain links, secured with spring ring closure.
The necklace has a wearable length of about 22 inches. The pendant portion is a generous approximate 4 inches x 2 1/4 inches at it's widest point with a maximum 5/8 inch profile or height. Weight of the necklace is a substantial 80 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact and free from damage. No chips, nicks, or cracks to resin. Shadings or patina are original to the design. All gold tone finish intact, front and back. Very slight wear on draped creases at bust line. No dents or improper bends to metal. Riveting secure in the three sectioned piece. Neck chain and spring ring closure secure. The neck chain may or may not be the original as many these vintage pendant necklace chains are different. Gold tone finish on chain and pendant coordinate. Clean. Darker areas on face / bust are original to piece. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.
Reverse of the pendant is signed: "RAZZA" preceded by copyright symbol. Circa 1970s.
