Stunning 18th Century Solid Silver and Paste Closed Back Pendant & Chain
This is a stunning and truly unique Baroque French pendant from the reign of Louis XVI, the last King of France and married to Marie Antoinette. This Pendant has its roots firmly in the ornate Baroque designs of the era with highly decorative sculpted Solid Silver and set with faux pale green Diamonds. The pendant is an elongated diamond shape which is studded with three faux Diamonds, at its base is a oval hanging faux Diamond which moves and catches the light as the pendant is worn. It is closed back and the faux Diamonds are foil backed to give colour and depth under candle light. The faux Diamonds are formed of glass and have a green to turquoise colour as they catch the light. The back of the pendant is marked with the French fleur de Lis for Paris, and then a Crown with what looks to be the date letter O which from my research is for Paris 1778. However please see the pictures carefully and do your own research to confirm as this is my opinion based on my own research and you would should confirm the above details yourself. The chain is of a foxtail design and has a push clasp and is approx 40cm in length. The chain is marked with what looks to be the two crabs French silver mark The main elongated diamond shaped part of the pendant is approx 3cm x 2.3cm The hanging oval setting is approx 1.5cm x 0.8cm The pendant is approx 3.7cm in length in total The three faux Diamonds on the outer edge of the pendant are approx 2.5cm in diameter The central faux Diamond is approx 3mm in Diameter The faux Oval Diamond is approx 5.5mm x 4mm Gem measurements are approximated due to the constraints of measuring them in their setting.
