This early Victorian silver and black dot paste Memorial / picture pendant is truly a sight to behold and is just jaw dropping stunning.
The pendant itself is a heavy sterling silver portrait piece, circular in shape and set with a halo of sparkly old black dot paste, it has a chunky silver bale, it contains an old photograph of a gentleman and the reverse is engraved with William Newsom 1851.
It is suspended from a gorgeous heavy curb link, sterling silver long guard chain, later Victorian with a whopping 66" length.
The pair go together beautifully and the chain can easily wrap around 3 times.
Good condition overall, age commensurate wear, some dust under the glazed compartment, light surface scratches, the long guard chain has been fitted with a modern silver fastener and there is a little tarnish up near the fastener.
Both unmarked both test as sterling silver.
They both have an aged patina and have not been cleaned or polished, a couple of the paste display minor discolouration as seen in the photos.
Pendant just under 2" width and 2.5" height including the bale.
Collectively they weigh at approximately 85.04 grams.
