Aesthetic Period Demi-Parure Of Silver
Behold a most delightful demi-parure of the Victorian Aesthetic Period. Consisting of matching earrings, brooch locket and pendant, the set is emblazoned with strong ornamentation. Diagonal stripes of silver and yellow gold over silver visually impact with a centered garland of stylized leaves embraced on both sides by a silver lace-like pattern. The naturalistic theme also includes roses of rose gold over silver with yellow gold leaves. All the pieces sport a beaded edge typical of the time.
The brooch, slightly smaller than the pendant, has a locket back with two rims, one glass and one plastic insert. The earrings retain their original ear wires. An antique box of goldenrod colored velvet in the shape of an oak leaf complete with veins has been specially customized for the set.
Date: Circa 1870.
