Peruzzi style Italian Deco silver griffins and masks Pendant Necklace with sodalite

By in archived |

For the discerning Thespians and theater-lovers out there a must-have Italian Renaissance Revival pendant necklace in silver feauturing a big sodalite cabochon and three dangling ancient comedy / tragedy masks. Very popular in the first decades of the 20th c. as mementos from one’s Grand Tour, this type of jewelry is associated with the Peruzzi and Coppini Bros but they were made by a number of Italian workshops and come in all degrees of quality. The casting in the pendant at hand has good detail with the griffins and florals easily readable to the eye; it has been carefully finished as well and set with a stone whose purple blue color is deep and rich.

Bold and just so nicely cast with an ornate, big cross pendant that boasts beading and oxidation, this is a vintage Deco Italian Renaissance Revival necklace in the style associated with the Peruzzi and Coppini Bros. Albeit not signed for maker this is such a well made piece that I wouldn’t have been surprised had I seen the Peruzzi name on it. Even the pendant’s back is embellished as you can see in the photos.
