Two Necklaces


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description As presently assembled, the gold necklace is a pastiche. One half is formed by a loop-in-loop chain with corrugated collars and a pendant crescent. The other half has flattened links bent double and pinched. Linking the two are a pair of lyre-volute attachments and a button disk edged with plain and beaded wire, which do not necessarily belong to either necklace.
