This is a very interesting antique gutta percha pendant. The guttfa percha was molded and subsequently carved. It came from the estate of an avid jewelry collector and her family told me that it was a memorialized death mask of a Prussian general. A fascinating and imposing piece, one of a kind from the 19th century and in immaculate conditin. Flat back with ring and bail. 1-5/8 x 2-1/2 inches.
