Museum of Modern Art New York
Curled Feline Pendant. Museum of Modern Art New York.
A very unusual pendant purchased from the Museum of Modern Art New York during the 1960's. It is actually a facsimile cast in beryllium copper and plated with gold. It was taken from a mold taken directly from the original object which is in the State Hermitage Museum in Leningrad.The original is stated as Late V11-early V1 century BC. WOW. The Museum of Modern Art New York stamp is to the back of the pendant and the original description attached when purchased is still with it. The pendant itself measures 6cms x 5cm and the gold plated chain measures 60cms in length. A very special piece no longer in its original box, but gift boxed by Vintage Online. For the special person who appreciates something different.
