With pleasure I show you here again one of my additions . A wonderful (especially the color) Micro Mosaic Etruscan style mounted silver gilt (vermeil) locket/pendant. The micro mosiac is in my opinion nice despite the age of this ornament from around 1850/60 perhaps even a little bit earlier. But it is a pity that one of the three tassels (the leftmost on the picture, see picture 3) is damaged. Unlike my earlier description of this pendant/locket I have since that time been lucky enough to find a good goldsmith who has been implo to improve the suspension of this tassel using the most modern instruments namely a laser. That means, of course, a big upgrade of this pendant. To restore also the damaged micro mosaic is not only expensive but also depends on a very good craftsman and unfortunately there are not so many. You know there might be one that also still have to pay? Please let me hear your comment?
