A vintage Portuguese pendant, sparkling with Paste 'gems' and nicely crafted in Silver with 18ct Gold fittings which mean it can be worn as a brooch too. Articulated to the bale it makes a real talking point on a lapel or at the centre of a dress. The 18ct Gold framed centre section holds an enamelled plaque but could equally become a locket.
With marks to the 18ct Gold pin which indicate a Portuguese origin and date of 1938-1984, this is an antique style piece which features the pretty ribbonesque detail atop, which is characteristic of antique Georgian Portuguese jewellery. Measures 2cm by 5cm.
