Gold Necklace


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description One hundred and three spool-shaped beads with loops rigidly set to right angles to one another at either end, each attached to its neighbor. Antelope-head finials made of sheet gold worked in repoussé; horns and ears applied separately, details of the horns and face are chased. The collars consist of cones of sheet gold, with wire twisted around them that once held a stone. One antelope holds the hook, the other the loop.
