ANTIQUE GEORGIAN PASTE NECKLACE SILVER GOLD CIRCA 1800
This beautiful antique Georgian paste stone necklace is a unique, and highly collectable piece. Each elaborately crafted link is built around a clear Paste stone, with larger Paste stones interspersed between them. Silver with 18ct Gold Gilt has been cleverly combined to give a two tone effect which brings out the engraving’s extraordinary detail.
Paste is a heavy, transparent flint glass that simulates the fire and brilliance of gemstones. White Pastes sparkle just like Diamonds and take expert craftsmanship to capture their beauty.
This is a wonderful example of the craftsmanship of the age, and a true historic piece to be treasured.
We recommend you insure for £1,500. We can provide a written Valuation on completion of the sale.
