This fabulous piece boasts a lady carved into black glass. She's proudly wearing pearls and braids, signifying an air of innocence around her yet her shadowy figure leaves a hint of mystery. With both a clasp and a link in the back, this piece can be worn either on its own or on a chain.

Details (approximate):

Dimensions: 45mm top to bottom x 35mm left to right. 20mm from back to front (including clasp).

Materials: Jet glass, pressed black glass

Marks: "W.P." inscribed on the back

Condition: This piece is in great condition. The lady is sharply depicted and the black beveled glass she sits atop is in great condition. The circular black glass beads around the edges of the piece are all round except for one which seems to be slightly cut off, but is smooth so it shouldn't cause any snags. The silver in the back shows signs of age, but nothing atypical of a piece that's over a century old.
