Dolphin Pendant

Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This wonderfully flamboyant design is close to the model on the title page of the second part of Hans Collaert's stunning series of pendant designs published in Antwerp in 1582: "Virtuosic Designs for Golden Ornaments." In the engraving, it is the god Apollo riding a sea monster, but the similarities remain strong.
