Condition Notes: A lovely antique pendant! Intricately detailed. The sapphire is heavily abraded. There is significant loss to the enamel. On the reverse, this appears to have previously been a component of something larger, possibly the centerpiece to a necklace. Evidence of lead solder. Chain is modern and not original to the piece.
