Antique Victorian Neoclassical watch cover pendant necklace. Crab desi
A gilt watch cover depicting a crab with pearl eyes. The repousse crab sits atop an openwork dome with Greek key border. We have converted this watch cover into a very unique pendant with a gold filled chain. 1-1/2" diameter. Chain is 17 inches. The watch cover dates to the 1870's to 1880's, the Neoclassical Revival when ancient Greek, Roman and Etruscan styles were a strong infuence on jewelry design. This lovely piece has some wear in the front to the gilt finish but as mostly in excellent condition. The would be the best gift for your favorite friend with a Cancer astrological birth sign! A very novel and unique one of a kind necklace.
