Victorian Torpedo Drop Pendant | Long French Jet Drop | Antique Jewelry | Gothic Revival Jet Black Glass Pendant - 20 Inch Black Chain

Sorry, this item has sold.

A fine medium size Victorian drop 'torpedo' pendant - antique French Jet (glossy opaque black glass) with a distinctly Gothic Revival design. The cut glass pattern reflects light beautifully and the drop looks super teamed with a matte black chain.

Please Note: I have another similar pendant - this is the larger of the two.

+ All the Details

French Jet (glossy opaque black glass) capped with 9ct gold, unmarked (not uncommon for this era) tested and guaranteed to be gold.

The Pendant
Size: 1.85 inches or 48mm from the chain to the bottom of the drop. The black glass tapers from 9mm at the widest part to 3.5mm at the cap and the cap then tapers to 1.5mm.

Weight: 1.9 grams without the chain.

Presented on a new blackened brass chain, 20 inches or 51cm long. The necklace is shown on a life size torso in photograph 4.

Age: c.1860

Very, very good. No chips to the cut glass, in great order. I can see under magnification that the suspension loop has been reinforced with silver solder. This is barely visible but mentioned for accuracy.

Janne's Notes:
A necklace drop that is dramatic and elegant. The black on black is very chic.
