Impeccable and pristine antique combination pendant / brooch by one of our finest early Australian jewellery firms Willis & Sons.
Crafted around 1910 from rich 15ct yellow gold and set with natural fine quality Persian Turquoise cabochon and natural seed pearls.
This piece is pristine. All the seed pearls are original as are the Turquoise, also the claws are as good as the day this pendant was made. We believe this antique piece has been tucked away and never worn.
The bale is articulated and when worn as a brooch can be tucked out of sight.
Measuring a lovely 5cm drop from the bale to the articulated Turquoise drop at the bottom and 3cm wide.
Fully hallmarked with Willis and Sons hallmark and 15ct to the verso and ‘W’ indicating this particular piece was made after 1904.
Incredible piece for its approximately 111 years, this is infinitely wearable today and would be the perfect piece also for a serious antique Australian jewellery collector.
