    Condition Report*:

    Designer: Louis Comfort Tiffany
    Gem Type: Amethyst
    Gem Average Clarity: Good
    Gem Shape: Oval-shaped, Round-cut
    Gem Count: 1 - 25
    Overall Condition: Very Good
    Notes: Some small areas of enamel loss to leaf edges. In very good condition considering the age. In the book "Louis Comfort Tiffany at Tiffany & Co." by John Loring, the author writes about a brooch (which is imaged) and goes on to say "A very large amethyst pendant with a similar grapevine motif appears in an archival photograph." This is almost certainly in reference to this necklace, which is a match to the brooch. A true collector's piece. The grapes, leaves and vines are nicely executed.
