This sterling silver seashell pendant is marvelously realistic. The three-dimensional, double-sided scallop shell is sizable but hollow. It's light weight enough to wear comfortably, and the integrated bale makes it easy to hang on a chain or anything else you like. This wonderful piece includes its original tag which reads, "Sterling Silver/ Cazenovia Abroad Ltd/ Made by Topázio/ in Portugal". The shell makes a lovely necklace. However, it was originally designed to be a Christmas tree ornament. Circa 1970.
Topázio is a Portuguese company that has produced premium sterling silver and silver plated products for over 140 years.
Cazenovia Abroad was founded in 1967 by Pat Trush and continues to be a family-owned and operated business. Pat created and designed expertly detailed, three-dimensional silver ornaments. Cazenovia Abroad also offers high quality silver ornaments from craftsmen located around the world.
Details.....The pendant measures 2" by 0.88" by 1.9" with bale. In Very Good Vintage Condition. With vintage and antique pieces, small imperfections are to be expected and considered part of the charm.
