Victorian Sterling Repousse Devil Skeleton Key Pendant
A fabulous key pendant from the Victorian (ca1880) era! Made of sterling silver, the pendant is particularly large in size and forms the shape of an old fashioned skeleton key with an orate floral handle and a long barrel shaft. The small face of a devil rests at the top of the handle in between the wreath-like floral design. The bottom of the key features a cutout pattern and several small hallmarks, with an additional touch mark appearing on the barrel shaft of the ring. At the top of the key is a large silver ring, allowing the pendant to be easily hung and worn on a chain. This beautiful piece has excellent craftsmanship and would make a very special addition to any jewelry collection!
Measurements: The key pendant hangs 3 5/8" long and is 1/4" thick. The handle measures 1 1/8" wide, and the barrel shaft is 3/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the key pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver and the bail is secure.
