GOOD: This 18th century Silver pink foiled Paste cross pendant is in great condition throughout. All of the blush-hued Paste gemstones are all secure within their settings with no nibbles, scratches or abrasions to their surface edges. There is some evidence of general wear throughout the pendant, which can be expected from a piece that is over 200 years old including little dings and worn down details. However, this does not detract from the pendant's inherent charm and Gothic allure.
