To me this as all the style of being Murrle Bennett, the pendant is marked 950 MB so I think it could be one of their earlier pieces because usually the mark would be MB&Co in a circle. The pendant I think as been handmade with a hammered finish, it is silver gilt. At the bottom there are 3 rivets which is typical of their work. The drop at the bottom was described as a imitation opal, I think it's real. The enameling is similar to a Tudor rose, the red rose of Lancashire and what should be white rose of Yorkshire which is yellow in this pendant. The enameling is translucent as you can see the hammering through it.
I have seen the same pendant on a auction in the States that also as the same markings and they describe it as it could be Murrle Bennett. Any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks for looking.

    Awww, Ken thank you. I'm pleased with this pendant because I'm sure I saw the auction lot above so I had an idea this pendant might be Murrle Bennett. It's funny how your memory and retain certain information, but forget other things, it's called selective memory, lol

    I'm really pleased with this one Judy as I got it for an excellent price. It is good when you can recall in your memory certain designs, this pendant I saw maybe about 2 years ago. My pendant came up on eBay recently I instantly regconized it.

    I actually picked one of these pendants up recently, it's the same design but mine has a red dropper. I'm certain it's by Murrle Bennett, as you say it could be an early piece as the makers mark is slightly different

    Hi Annasacorns, thanks for your comment. I think the first link I posted was the exact pendant to this and yours, except it had a red drop, I think the stone could be Cornelian.
