A Very Rare Example of True Antique Georgian Era Brilliant Pink Paste & Sterling Jewelry. Later Re-worked in the Victorian Era.
Georgian era paste jewelry was re-worked sometime in the Victorian era when an additional chain was added (hand welded) possibly to make the necklace that much more eye-catching and substantial (which would be in keeping with the current Victorian aesthetic). Victorian reworking of Georgian era jewelry was common.All pastes are hand set in silver cups as the style for the period. One cup toward the center of the necklace seems to have been created from from a period box clasp and perhaps it was where two separate paste strands were attached together.
Pastes have an exceptionally brilliant pink color and elegant sparkle. The pastes are eye clean but upon close examination and/or magnification show some expected signs of age/wear i.E, surface scratches, minuscule flea bites and abrasions. Acid tested for Sterling Silver. Some grime and patina - Could use a careful cleaning.
Important: Please be aware this is a shorter length necklace! Approximate measurements: 14.1/2long; each silver paste link varies slightly but approx. 1/4 Approximate weight of 20 grams. Se rely on the measurements in the listing description when evaluating size.
As my photos are often enlarged. Very Good Antique Condition, including any previously mentioned details, along with some possible signs of age appropriate wear visible upon close inspection and/or magnification i. Tiny dings, dents, abrasions, patina, grime, etc. "Condition" can sometimes be subjective so please carefully view all listing pictures to evaluate for yourself.
