A rather lovely drop pendant, full of intricate detailing in filigree work and most likely an Italian unsigned Peruzzi piece. Created in c1900, the stones are an inspiration – agates with such a glowing translucency to them.
This fabulous articulated pendant is in three sections, firstly the bale, which matches the scroll work detailing of the rest of the pendant. I love the large bale behind, as it would accommodate so many different widths of chain. The filigree scroll work and tiny silver balls are displayed in a very Peruzzi way. The four cabochons of agate are particularly well matched, all light orange with a lovely effect in the light, as you can see. The two side dangles are bezel set with a tiny rope work detail at the foot of the setting, however, the central drop has more matching filigree work. A lovely articulated pendant which is approx 8cm from the top of the bale to the end of the suspended central drop.
It is not signed, they weren’t all signed but you can see from the detailing who the designer surely was. c1900 and retains some patina so you could polish further if preferred.
I shall send in a new gift box as the boxes in the images are for display only. Thank you.
