A charming and unusual piece of hand-crafted jewellery. The only one I've seen like it. A hand-crafted gold mosaic pendant. The surface of the flattened spherical pendant (has been finely decorated with gold cloisons of various shapes into which micromosaic hardstones just possibly glass or ceramics) of various colours have been fitted. The decoration is mounted on a gold bead foot and scalloped-edged top-mount with unsealed gold jump-ring. There are no legible marks. The jump ring does seem to have a worn/misstruck control mark of some sort. In any case, this may not be original to the pendant (but the colour of the gold matches well). Difficult to date, but I'm sure this is at least a hundred years old. I've called it Indo-Persian, because it is similar to quality craftsmanship from that part of the world, but I'll happily stand corrected and would welcome any input on this piece.
SW15Collectables has clarified that the Antique Indo-Persian Gold Mosaic Pendant (LA209564) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being ca 1900
Very good condition. I will always mention anything that materially affects the aesthetic or function of a piece, but will not attempt to describe what I consider to be normal for age and use. Please use the photographs as well as you can and I’m always happy to answer specific questions. There are losses to the decoration, quite clear in the photographs, but not usually apparent in normal use.
