    This silver pendant was made in Sweden in 1948. If I can read the tiny makers mark right it was made by a GS Gustavsson in the town Motala. The time is not right for Art Deco but the symetry makes me think of art deco, although it is a bit organic as well. I don´t know if it is a stone or just glass but it has a wonderful blue colour that makes you think of a bright summersky. The stone/glass is about 24 mm X 14 mm. The pendant as a whole is 45 mm in length. I would like suggestions about the style and if you think it is a stone or glass. Thankyou for looking.

      The large stone in the center was characteristic for Retro Modern that was popular in the 40s, and being Scandinavian, the pendant exhibits the regional style influence, too and there's some Arts and Crafts there imho.

      Victorian Revival? Seems like jewelry from 1950's-60's feature a hodge podge of past styles from Victorian (late 1800's) to Rococco (1940's) and then the beautiful spare "Danish" styles become popular in later 50's into the 1960's. Not done before - new. Also popular in the 1950's (but not your example) were tailored geometric styles that still hold their own today. I'll post a few items from my "tailored" bracelets for you. Beautiful glass.

      I think after WWII there was some money to spend on

      Oops - got post happy - hit it too soon! After WWII there was money to spend on little luxuries like jewelry. So manufacturers made something for everyone's taste.
