Edwardian Festival: Festoon Necklace in Paste
The festoon necklace has had more than one reign of popularity. Whether the apex was the Georgian era or that of the Edwardian period, its delicacy and femininity goes uncontested. Adorning the décolletage of the wealthy lady aristocrats in the painted portraits lining the walls and corridors of every museum of fine art, the bejeweled festoon necklace is often featured.
Appropriate for a night at the opera or an elegant intimate dinner, the neck is draped in waves of shimmer and radiance from an expanse of white pastes punctuated by three flowers of white paste petals with a deep amethyst-colored center paste separated by a pair of classically style bows. A quartet of floral and leaf elements ebb and flow with a continuation of white pastes. A faux pearl or glass drop in the guise of a Loddon lily or leucojum aptly finishes the symmetry and balance of this refined neck piece.
Measurements: 16-1/4 inches (41.4 cm) in length. The paste area is 3-5/8 inches (14.4 cm) in length; each festoon has a drape of ¾ of an inch (21. cm). This antique necklace has a weight of 19.9 grams (12.8 dwt).
Hallmarks: 925 (for sterling silver) and another indistinct hallmark.
Date: Circa 1900.
