Description

Victorian French silver paste necklace in silver. It is composed of 14 silver plates set with paste stones. A flower motif is reproduced on the whole necklace. In the centre there is a larger flower.

These necklaces were sometimes sewn onto a velvet ribbon. A similar example is reproduced on page 138 of the book Les Bijoux Des Français by Michael Fieggen.
