I love this necklace but I don't know anything about it. I bought it at a boot sale in the North of Scotland a few weeks ago. I can't see any maker's marks or stamps but it is silver and has a good age patina so I am reluctant to clean it to look more closely for a mark.
It is 16 inches long and weighs 27.5 grams. The bolt ring is large, just over 1/2 an inch diameter and it comes right off so I do not know if it is original to the chain or not (but it does look right).
It is beautifully made and I think it looks victorian and Italian. I don't know what the little drops are that come from the flowers - they look a bit like acorns or pineapples so I would be really happy to know what others think they are and also any ideas about age, origin and possibly a maker would be appreciated.
