Victorian Lover's Eye Pendant, 1800's
A truly extraordinary and one of a kind antique Victorian Lover's Eye pendant, 19th century or older.
This magnificent and unique pendant was discovered more than 20 years ago in London. It is a fascinating Lover's Eye pendant of remarkable beauty and splendour. In the past such items were commissioned as gifts expressing devotion between loved ones. Some others were painted in memory of the deceased. This particular eye is a precious oil painting on canvas created with exceptional talent and artistry. The miniature painting is placed under a glass in a silver pendant that acts as its frame, measuring about 6 cm or approximately 2.3 inches in diameter. The silver pendant carries an exotic aura, with two half spheres attached on both sides and a botanical engraving on its back. The pendant comes with a silver chain [perhaps added later] that is 34 cm or approximately 13.3 inches in length. This is an outstanding treasure like no other, in a lovely antique condition with some signs of ageing that in my opinion only brings forward its true magic today. It is exactly as I discovered it.
