Vintage 900 Silver Filigree Pendant Necklace, 800 Silver Cable Chain, European, Ornate, Intricate
This beautiful silver filigree pendant necklace is of European origin. It features a stunning 900 silver filigree pendant with an 800 silver chain. The pendant is an intricate work of art with a beautifully handwoven filigree design. It is long with a large floral accent in the center and has applied spiral and bead accents. It is marked on the attached bail with what I believe to be a French mark, but the mark is blurred and an exact description cannot be obtained. I am dating it to circa 1930's. The 800 silver chain is a later piece with Italian marks for the Vicenza region. It is long and has a fabulous handwrought appearance that you just won't find in newer machine-made chains. It closes with a spring ring clasp. Both pieces have a rich patina from age that gives them a wonderful, timeless appeal. The necklace is an absolute treasure!

The chain measures about 23.5 inches in length. It is hallmarked "800" and "502 VI" on it's attached ring. The 502 VI mark is listed as the mark for Marchetto Francesca, Vincenza, Italy, circa 1960s. The pendant measures approximately 2 inches long and 13/16 inch wide. It is hallmarked "900", has an undecipherable mark in a cartouche, and a maker's mark of "JF" on its attached bail. The combined weight of both pieces is 8.5 grams,

This necklace is a superb beauty! With its amazing filigree pendant, it's a one of a kind piece that would make a fine addition to a vintage silver collection. It would make a super gift for someone special, but once you see it, you'll be tempted to keep it for yourself! The wonderful chain can do extra duty holding your other vintage silver pendants. The set is in excellent vintage condition and ready to wear!
