Pin with Three Pendants

Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The head of the gold pin is missing but the molding that kept what were probably its composite elements securely in place is still preserved. Three loops soldered to the pin retain three pendant cylinders which may or may not belong. The original photograph of the cylinders shows them without the pin. Two of the cylinders are ornamented with wire, the third has a stone bead jammed in its bottom.
