Antique Victorian lily and forget-me-not pietra dura oval mourning pendant
Pietra dura is similar to micro mosaic, where pieces of semi-precious stones are cut to form petals, leaves, and stems and set in an onyx or black glass background. This onyx oval pendant has soft, curved edges and depicts a white lily and turquoise blue forget-me-not buds. Olive green stems lead away from the blooms and connect to brownish green leaves. A loop is screwed into the top of the onyx and a large silver bail is attached to it, ready for a chain. CONDITION: Very good for its age. No damage to the floral design on the front. Tiny pits on the back and light scratches throughout. Tarnish to the silver bail. CIRCA: Mid Victorian era. MEASUREMENTS: a little over 2 1/8 inches long including bail and a little over 1 1/4 inches at its widest.
