Late Victorian 14kt Mother of Pearl Pistol Hand Gun Pendant
An unusual gun pendant from the late Victorian (ca1900's) era! This funky piece is made of 14kt yellow gold and portrays the shape of a pistol handgun. The gold gun has a realistic, 3-dimensional appearance complete with a barrel, slight, trigger, moving cylinder and a grip made of mother of pearl. The mother of pearl is riveted into place and can be found on both sides, adding a rich detail to the piece. The pendant hangs on an angle from a simple gold bail at the hammer and the side is stamped "14K". It's a funky and unusual piece and would make a great addition to any collection!
Measurements: The gun pendant measures approximately 1 3/4" wide, 1/2" tall and has a depth of a little less than 1/4".
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold or to the mother of pearl. The bail is intact and in good condition.
