A very bold and unusual sterling necklace from the Victorian (ca1880) era! The necklace is comprised of a sterling chainlink collar and a row of sterling urns which hangs below. Each individual urn is rounded on the front surface and flat on the back, and comes to a point at the bottom, resembling a spike. There are 89 urns in total, forming a very eye-catching pattern when combined with the sterling chain. The necklace fastens together with a sterling push clasp, which is marked with several characters that appear to be a signature or hallmark. It's a very dramatic and unique necklace that would make a fabulous statement piece!
Measurements: The necklace measures approximately 18" long. The chainlink collar and row of urns measures approximately 1 1/4" tall from top to bottom. The piece measures approximately 1/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver and the clasp is intact and in good working condition. Two of the sterling urns appear to have been re-attached, which is unnoticeable when worn.
