Antique Georgian Gold, Sepia & Paste Pendant
Details: A beautiful Georgian pendant converted from a pin with a hand-painted sepia portrait of a woman writing a letter - presumably to her beloved from whom she is separated by a sea voyage or battle. Bordered by a paste studded scalloped frame, the painting is set with rock crystal glass to protect it. Inset at the back is beautifully braided hair, also set under rock crystal. We adore the history, beauty and sentimentality of these very collectable pieces and this one is in very good condition.
Measurements: Overall drop is 2". Pendant is 1" wide, and 1 1/2" tall.
Origin: English, c. 1760's.
Notes: Chain sold separately.
