ANTIQUE VICTORIAN DOVE PENDANT SILVER PASTE CIRCA 1860
This beautiful antique Silver Paste Dove pendant is Victorian Circa 1860.
The wonderful pendant is decorated in sparkling white Paste Stones and features a fancy bow with a hanging Dove carrying an olive branch.
Doves are known as the ‘Love bird’ as they’re known to keep the same partner throughout their entire life. A Dove carrying an Olive branch has long been a symbolic image of peace and freedom.
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.
The pendant is all set in Silver and displays pristine Victorian workmanship all round.
This is a lovely antique piece, steeped in history and would look beautiful displayed on a Silver chain!
