ANTIQUE NUMBER SA1048524: Antique Victorian French Cross Pendant Pink Paste Pearl Emerald Enamel

Antique Victorian French Cross Pendant Pink Paste Pearl Emerald Enamel

£995    $1,273    €1,150
An exquisite antique French cross pendant lined with soft pink paste stones, foil-backed and cut in various shapes and sizes across each crossbar. It’s further decorated with small seed pearls and four green emeralds with black enamel detailing across the front, dotted with white polka dots.
 
Paste is a heavy, transparent flint glass that has been used since ancient times to simulate the beauty of gemstones. The art of cutting paste takes expert craftsmanship and the highest quality stones are often able to replicate the cut, colour and sparkle of natural gems to near perfection.
 
The piece is fashioned in silver and is beautifully ornate with milgrain edging, scrolling motifs and a rope ring around the centre stone. It dates to the early 19th Century and is complete with a French silver boar mark on the back of the loop.
