Another purchase from my trip to England. This splendid Arts & Crafts silver necklace set with moonstones is attributed to Frances Thalia How and Jean Milne, though there are no marks. English. Circa 1900. Central panel length 8 cm. Width 5.3 cm. Around necklace 43 cm. In its original fitted case, (unfortunately, with no labeling).
Frances Thalia How exhibited 1896-1928 & Jean Milne exhibited 1904-1917. Their address was 72, Pembroke Walk Studios, London.
