Perfection in a Georgian French Paste Pendant

$3,700

About

At its finest, antique paste jewelry was made treating the pastes like gemstones. This was a venerated art form, its beauty and workmanship admired and collected by royalty and the wealthy in its own right, not as an imitation. Note the fineness of the silver design, like a snowflake in its delicacy. Turn the cross over. Old paste is entirely made by hand. Each section that holds a stone is round and smooth. Worn backwards, it would still be beautiful. The pastes have been expertly set. No element of deterioration has occurred due to the tight closure of the silver around the stones. Each stone is underlined with a thin foil of metal to enhance capturing candle glow. The stones are different cuts and different sizes. Attention like this was rarely given to individual stones in 20th century paste other than perhaps French Art Deco pieces. This is a case of the more you know, the more you will appreciate, even love, a museum quality example such as this Croix de Saint Lo. Perfect Condition
