About

Circa 1870s, 14k, Italy. This glorious Etruscan Revival fringe necklace is replete with detailed festoons of putti, or angel's heads on wings, interspersed with darts hung from an elegant architecture. The look is exquisite vintage chic. Particularly well made, this example has a number of rare qualities. The figures are continuous and complete, the condition is excellent with no restorations, and the original make is meticulously precise.

Remarks from Lawrence Jeffrey: "Archeological jewelry set the tone for the many later revivals and aesthetic periods of the Victorian era. It gave them permission to have fun with the history of Decorative Arts, to borrow, plunder, willfully plagiarize and marry unlikely ages and designs together in the name of fashion."

SIZE: 18.5 inches long WEIGHT: 66.5 grams

HALLMARKS: Early to mid 20th century Polish gold assay mark, probably added during a household inventory or government property census.

STOCK NUMBER: 17438
