Art Deco Italian Renaissance Revival silver and stone Necklace ~griffins and mermaid

on Apr 8, 2017 in archived

Rich and beautifully patina-ed this figural Italian sterling silver necklace is designed in the Peruzzi Renaissance Revival style and though not signed for maker, it is of high quality. I find the interplay of blue and light green in the polished agate cabs quite pleasing and the central station with its mermaid flanked by griffins breathtaking. The dangles and the ornate links of the chain complete a stunning necklace…

Hallmarks / Date: “ITALY” and “STERLING”; 1920s-40s

Condition: excellent vintage with nicely cast links that have good detail, gorgeous stones in soothing blues and light greens, great patina and very very elegant
