Art Nouveau French 18kt Gold Lucky '13' Pendant Necklace
A lovely gold lucky '13' pendant necklace from the Art Nouveau (ca1900) era! This beautiful piece is comprised of a number '13' pendant which hangs from a modern gold chain. The pendant, which is French in origin, is crafted in 18kt yellow gold and has a simple design, which is based on the number 13. Oval in shape and very flat, the open wirework piece has a wide gold frame which adorns lovely carved roses and leaves at the top and bottom and the number '13' is at the center. The pendant hangs from a simple gold bail and attaches to a fine, twisted link chain which clasps at the back. The back of the pendant has two hallmarks - the French eagle's head and another which is illegible; please refer to photographs. The special piece looks beautiful on and would be a perfect piece for anyone that has a connection to the number 13!
Measurement: The pendant hangs 1 1/8" long, is a little less than 5/8" wide, and less than 1/16" thick. The chain measures 20.5" in total length.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant and necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting or chain and the clasp is secure and in good working condition.
