Condition: the engraved bail, while antique Victorian and from the same period (c. 1850-70), was sourced separately and a marriage to the present piece. The back of the pendant has two areas of unevenness, where the brooch pin was removed (please view photos). The gold of the back now has a brushed satin finish. Otherwise, this pendant is in great antique condition. The front is particularly nicely preserved. The crystal intaglio is in great condition without chips, the intaglio likewise in good condition. The engraving to bail and etruscan style granulation are all well preserved and still crisp.
