Dear fellow CW friends! I have eventually come around to posting something... I have seen all your nice things and been inspired. Thankyou!
I have recently bought this silver and enamel necklace that I try to find some ideas about era and origin about, if possible. I haven´t been able to solv it myself but hope someone here will know or be willing to share ideas.
I haven´t been able to find any marks but it´s silver and enamel. The details looks handmade and somewhat old, as the tubehinge on the back of the bow and the spring ring (it has no spring, you have to manually close it). The patern that is underneath the enamel, best shown on the bow, I have seen on russian enamel jewelry put maybe that´s not a clue.
The necklace is 20 cm long, the ten enamel rods are each about 1,5 cm long and the bow is 3 cm x 1,5 cm. There are eight silver cubes in the chain inbetween the rods.
The necklace needs some cleaning and attention, I know :) I will see to it when I have red up on how to clean enamel.
Lots of thanks! Happy New year by the way!
