Pendant with Birds and Flowers

Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This pendant depicts a small pink-and-white bird seated in a hanging basket of flowers. The quality of the materials and craftsmanship suggests that this is a piece of "peasant jewelry," a term used to describe the more traditional, less extravagant forms of jewelry worn by individuals of modest income or social status, such as laborers and people from the country.
