Deco Italian Peruzzi style silver figural Necklace ~ gryphon links with carnelian cabs

on Mar 8, 2017 in archived

Following the design choices of the Peruzzi Bros, this unsigned vintage Italian silver necklace features mythological beast, floral and grape links and is adorned with three bezel-set carnelian cabochons. Classically Italian Deco and most probably a memento of a young lady’s Grand Tour, it is in excellent condition and comes with a sterling extension that makes it wearable for most of us…

Hallmarks / Date: not signed for maker nor hallmarked for metal content; tested and guaranteed to be silver of at least .800 purity, if not sterling; 1920s-40s

Condition: excellent vintage with a nicely cast figural design, beautifully colored carnelian cabs and no damage or repairs noted
