At last I found what I had long been searching. This beautiful 18th century Silesian meshwork necklace with wonderful iron meshwork cross /pendant. The color of the cross and chain are silvery gray. And it must have been a tremendous work to make it. This can be seen clearly on the cross pendant but also the links of the chain are completely twisted. Both are considered their age in a very good condition.
Here and there are some rust spots. In the book; Cut Steel and Berlin Iron Jewellery by Ann Clifford.
I read the advise from the writer how to improve those spots namely; pick off the rust with a soft brush and then rub the spots with a cloth with oil.
To find more on this topic I advice you to read the article written by
Senior Editor Ben Marks together with me. You can find it here:
I therefore ask each of the readers / collectors or maybe they know an even better way to tackle these rust spots??
