Georgian Black Dot Paste Pendant from the late 18th Century. Originally born as a jeweled slide for a ribbon, it was converted later to pendant form. Each early cut paste has foil backed in its setting and sparkles brilliantly. A faux emerald paste is set in the center. Heavy substantial sterling setting with slightly bombe face. Conversion was well done and can be removed if desired for use as a slide. 1790's France. 1" x .75". Excellent condition.
