Very very good antique condition. All Turquoise and Pearls are original with no evidence of re-gluing. Verso of pendant has been ‘bloomed’ or fire gilded to give a matte high carat appearance as was the technique popular during this era. Lovely early piece by one of our important early Australian makers.
