This is a stunning Pendant Locket with Brooch Pin, in 18 carat rose gold with silver setting studded with Pearls. The Pendant hangs from a ornate bale which is also studded with Pearls, below is a opening locket, with a painted picture to the front and an opening glass panel at the rear. The painting has not photographed well as the colours have been washed out a little by the camara. The glass is present on both front and back and is slightly magnifying on the back. The central portrait is a classical scene with a young woman with basket in classical landscape.The portrait has a rose gold frame and this is then surrounded with a intricate silver set garland of flowers studded with little pearls. As with lots of jewellery of this era it is multi functional with both a bale and a brooch pin so the item could be worn in two ways. The pin is present and is very sharp, it overhangs the brooch as is usual for the era and is closed with a simple'c' clasp. It is marked on the bale with the French Eagle for 18 carat gold it also has what appear to be a makers mark. Unlike UK jewellery which bears a date letter it cannot be accurately dated but it is my opinion that it dates to the latter half of the 18th century due to the composition and style, please look at the pictures carefully as they form part of the listing and please do your own research regarding period etc, as this is my opinion based on research and experience but your should do your own research to confirm. The item is in very good condition for an item of this age however it is not brand new and will therefore show signs of use as we would expect to see from an antique item Weighs 11.8 grams Total drop 5.5cm The locket is 3.7cm x 2.5 cm The central portrait is approx 2.4cm x 1.3cm This is a lovely item and piece of history it would make a unique gift to mark a special occasion or addition to any collection of Georgian Jewellery.
