This is a beautiful vintage Dutch silver pendant, on its original silver curb chain.
The pendant is a beautiful large showy size, and set with a wonderful Dutch Delft porcelain cabochon.
This features a classic Dutch Windmill scene and has a glossy polished finish. It is a genuine piece of vintage Delft porcelain and is marked as such on the reverse side. It has a beautiful bezel setting and is raised within a very pretty floral surround. The setting and surround are both Dutch silver, as is the chain. This is completely original to the pendant.
It is very rare to find Dutch silver pendants complete with their Dutch silver chains! These are usually lost and replaced with standard sterling silver chains.
Both the pendant & chain are hallmarked, details of which are below.
2.5cm (1") diameter & 7mm depth.
Delft porcelain cabochon:
Length: 17 & 1/4" approx (44cms)
Width: Fine 1mm.
Dutch 835 silver purity sword hallmark on both the pendant & chain.
Hand written 'Delfts' on the porcelain.
** The 835 stamp shows a silver content of 83.5%. This is slightly lower in purity than 925 sterling which is 92.5% silver. 835 was a commonly used grade of silver during vintage periods in some European countries.
Superb vintage condition with natural light age related tarnish to the silver. A few barely visible green specks to the silver which can occur over time to lower grade silver.
The porcelain is perfect with no chips or cracks.
The 835 sword hallmark was stamped on Dutch silver from 1953. We estimate the pendant to be 1950s/early 1960s in date.
The necklace will be sent in a beautiful new presentation box.
