This rare antique coral necklace from the Biedermeier period around 1830 was brought over the Alps from Italy as an impressive souvenir from a long journey.
Italy has been the favorite country of many for centuries. The numerous art treasures and Mediterranean flair make the country a highlight for any traveler.
Our extraordinary antique necklace presented here features a particularly beautiful clasp.
It is very elaborate and sculpted.
The design of the setting with its engravings and decorative ornaments can be dated to around 1830/40.
It symbolizes an open flower with a small central coral cameo surrounded by finely chased foliage.
It depicts the profile of a classical lady.
The countless small natural corals from the Mediterranean are painstakingly knotted by hand into six individual strands and
and form the antique choker necklace with finely graduated curves.
The six-strand Biedermeier necklace is beautifully preserved and testifies to the love of Italian art.
The clasp of the necklace is gold-plated silver. The necklace is of museum quality.
