Claire's Old Vintage Victorian Necklace Pot Metal Black Cab Double Strand
• Materials: pot metal, faux marcasites
• Maker: Claire's (old, not new)
• Approximate Year: c1930s
• Size: 17"
This necklace is marked "Claire's" (a different signature from the modern jewelry of the same name, which has a small "c"), and is probably from the Victorian era. The pendant is made of pot metal and is rather ornate, with a central black cab and "wings" of faux marcasites and a detailed, textured pattern. The necklace has a double strand chain with solid secured points about every 3/4-inches (it is not sterling silver). There is a somewhat large loop under the black cab, which was perhaps used to hang a chatelaine-type object? The necklace is 17-inches long, with a jump ring clasp. I will do some light cleaning of the necklace before shipping, unless requested otherwise.
It will be shipped in a gift box.
