A wonderful, wonderful necklace dating from the c1900 era and all beautifully hand crafted and in amazing condition, right down to the striking blue enamel roundels. I have a sneaky suspicion this may be a Scottish piece-perhaps Glasgow School. It was purchased in Glasgow and has the five “stations” around the chain that I have found on a number of Glasgow School pieces.

The enamels are of a vivid colour drift, from bright sky blue to a light navy at the bottom. They are amazing actually. I love the graduation from the large disc at the centre, measuring approx 1.9cm in diameter, to the two smaller discs measuring approx 1.3cm in diameter. The three discs have been punctuated by blister pearls, hanging on the same type of double link from the chain and also, lovingly hand crafted into their own silver settings. As if to echo the pearls in those disc, there is a wing pearl suspended below the main enamel panel.

With its original silver chain and barrel clasp fastener-this is a joy of a piece. The drop on the main pendant section is approx 3cm and the length of the chain is approx 42.5cm (just a touch over 16.5 inches). I will send in a new gift box as the boxes in the images are for display only. Complimentary tracked and signed delivery too.
