Description

What a rarity- a wonderful signed William Hair Haseler Arts and Crafts pendant with original ornate bale and matching, intricate Arts and Crafts chain. Such a lovely opportunity to acquire the pieces together. This would have retailed at Liberty & Co in London in the early years of the 1900s- it is astonishing actually as the design is so timeless. This opulent piece of Arts and Crafts work also has a gold bale fitting to the verso-which is always a nice sign of the quality pieces.

The main pendant is set with a blister pearl and an arrangement of loops in silver, that very much remind you of flower petals. This gives the overall effect of the design representing a flower. I love the typical Haseler flattened “rivets” which are studded near the central pearl. There is a baroque pearl drop suspended below the main plaque. The elongated silver and gold bale has a motif used in the intricate chain. The chain has alternating links; those that are the same as the bale and then a link made up of three circles and four silver balls. It makes for a lovely effect and it is always so hard nowadays to find the original chains to lovely pieces.

In pleasing condition, there has been a clasp replacement at some point in her life. Fully and clearly signed with the usual stamps of “WHH” and the usual, distinctive “.925” you also find on some of the other pieces of Liberty jewellery.  The pendant drop measures approx 7.4cm, including the bale and the length of the chain is approx 42cm (16.5 inches). A beautiful necklace all round!

I shall send in a necklace presentation box (not the box in the images) by complimentary Special Delivery in the UK or by courier internationally. Thank you.
