This wonderful Edwardian pendant is a fascinating artifact, romantic and mysterious. A square pendant of sterling silver has been worked into a bouquet of flowers using the repoussé metal working technique creating a relief sculptural effect. The alternate side of the pendant holds a square mirror with beveled edges. The antique mirror has clouded; it no longer reflects but it looks strange and beautiful, ideal for use as a scrying glass. The mirror is held by hundreds of tiny, decorative prongs. The bale has been sculpted and engraved to resemble a twist of string, an absolutely charming detail. Circa 1900.
The bouquet depicts roses, pansies and forget me nots. In the language of flowers, these three blossoms are all symbols of romance. Roses represent love and passion, forget me nots represent true love and the pansy represents "tender and pleasant thoughts." A perfect token of love.
Details.....The pendant measures 1.71" across, 2.16" with bale and 0.36" thick. In Very Good Antique Condition, the mirror is extremely clouded and no longer creates a reflection. You should always expect some wear on your vintage and antique jewels, we consider it part of the charm.
