A different design each side, with ornate hair work, with Gold thread to accent. Glazed with bevelled edges, set into a Gold coloured frame.It opens widely as shown in the last two photos. The top is hinged, as is the bale of the pendant. A really large hair work piece, measuring 2 3/4 in length, by 1.75 across the widest part in the middle.
Considering the age of this piece, the condition is remarkable, and its large size is very unusual and highly collectible. It could do with a little restoration on the hair work in places, nothing a skilled hand couldnt do.
There is a slight rattle to the inserts, both are slightly damaged to the edges (see last pictures). I will carefully wrap this inside a little box for safe carriage.
