GE0RGIAN SILVER SKULL

RARE GE0RGIAN SILVER SKULL

  Although it may seem strange to some, there are many people who collect and wear skull jewelry. This skull is Georgian English - it probably dates from around 1800. It can be worn on a chain, and opens to reveal a a beautifully chased open-work compartment, probably intended to hold a piece of perfumed fabric (the streets didn't smell so sweet in those days). This is a rarity.

Measurement: 1.25" x 0.75" x 0.875"

From Primavera Gallery's collection of English Georgian, antique and vintage jewelry.
