Wilhelm Schmidt Art Nouveau Boulder Opal Iron Gold Roman Soldier Pendant

About

This magnificent Art Nouveau antique pendant features the head of a Roman soldier made in iron and beautifully accented with 14k yellow gold details. Purple Australian Boulder opal adorns the stunning headpiece. With a radiant colorful fire from deep within, this stone is valued for its ability to avert evil. Completed with a long filigree chain hand-made in 9k gold. This piece is probably made by Wilhelm Schmidt, an iconic European cameo-carver who never signed his pieces but worked for best jewelry firms of the late 19th century. Schmidt's trademark material became the opal stone and he is well known for his masterful techniques and neo-classical designs. Made in United Kingdom circa 1930s. Measurements: 1.25" (32mm) x 1.77" (45mm) head, 30" (76.2cm) chain length.
