Victorian 14kt Tiger Claw Pendant

SKU: 44648


Tiger claw jewelry became popular during the British colonization of India during the Victorian period. This period was known as the British Raj (Hindi for 'rule'). The pieces were produced to appeal to the British travelers as souvenirs with an Indian flare. This craft is now banned which makes the older pieces very collectible.

This striking tiger claw pendant from the Victorian (ca1880) era is particularly impressive! The piece features an authentic tiger's claw which displays natural tan hues. The claw is held within a smoothly polished 14kt yellow gold encasement, which extends down the interior curve and wraps around the tip. The top of the gold encasement displays a lovely foliate and floral design on each side and is topped with a round bail, perfect for hanging from a favorite chain. A bold statement piece, this Victorian pendant would make a gorgeous addition to any collection!

Measurements: The pendant hangs approximately 1" long (excluding the bail at the top), and measures an overall 1 1/16" wide, and is about 3/16" thick. 

Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting. The claw displays some natural color and texture variation throughout. The bail is secure and in good working order.
