Here we have a fabulous antique White Paste large cross pendant that's blessed us with its presence!
This cross pendant is somewhat unique compared to others we have come across...
Resting on a base bar are eleven circular metal borders encasing masterfully hand cut White Paste gems. it's a fabulous design that suggests the White Paste is floating above the metalwork in a lovely illusion and we think it's absolutely gorgeous!
The Paste is stunningly sparkly and glittering in every direction all the way up to the heavens and back!
ERA: Art Deco (1920-1939)
MEASUREMENTS: All White Paste gems are 4mm in diameter.
The pendant measures 49mm long x 33mm wide x 4mm deep.
Including the bale it measures 56mm long.
MATERIALS: White Paste, metal.
HALLMARKS: None present, tests base metal/ silver coloured metal.
VERY GOOD: This is a very well made antique Paste large cross pendant that is in great condition for its age. The White Pastes are as bright as ever! A couple of the stones have minor cosmetic chips, although none that are cause for concern - they look just like facets unless under close inspection! The metal work is fabulous and the stones are held nice and securely. All in all a beautiful antique pendant that is ready to go to a new home straight away!
