Chatelaine (Ornamental Chain) with the Figure of Judith with the Head of Holofernes


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description This piece appears to date from the 19th-century, it may be an unfinished work. The central portion of the architectural strap work and the figure of Judith are very similar to a number of double-sided renaissance revival pendants designed and executed by Reinhold Vasters in Aachen, Alfred Andre and Henri Husson in Paris, Salomon Weininger in Vienna, and Gabriel Hermeling in Cologne, as well as others, during the second half of the 19th century.
