Damascene Toledo Ware Pendant
Damascene was the art of decorating black steel objects with gold, silver, and copper thread and began in Toledo Spain. Pieces went on to be engraved rather than the painstaking expertise needed for their original art, and still today this design is often brought back from Spain as a souvenir . The pendant has a lovely design with bird and floral emblems surrounded by a filigree frame. Overall dimension is 5cms across. The pendant hangs on a fine gold plated chain measuring 45cms end to end with a bolt ring clasp. In good pre loved condition. The engraving is perfect. Gift boxed by Vintageonline.
