Unique Extremly Rare Large Georgian 18ct Gold Mounted Carved Buddha Head Pendant
UNIQUE EXTREMLY RARE LARGE GEORGIAN 18CT GOLD MOUNTED CARVED BUDDHA HEAD PENDANT. This is a stunning Unique Extremely Rare Large Georgian 18ct Gold Mounted Carved Buddha Head Pendant, this Breat Taking Pendant would date to circa 1800 making it at nearly 220 years old, the detailing to the head is stunning, the Buddha Head is of a large size and has been crafted and carved in an exceptional way, the detailing is breath taking, you can see every feature to the Buddha's Face it has been carved beautifully, he has the most expressive face from his down turned mouth which has smile lines engraved on each side, he has a lovely nose and his eyes well they are so expressive, he also has laughter lines to each side of his eyes and also lines to his forehead, no detail has been left uncarved, he has wonderul carved ears and to the back his hair is pulled back and tied up at the top, it truly is a Unique and a very special Georgian Pendant of a very good size, the Buddha is so very life like, its breath taking , this then has then been pinned in place on an 18ct Gold Mount, there is a very small rubbed mark near one pin but its to rubbed to make out. The quality of the craftsmanship is superb, this i believe would have once belonged to a wealthy Georgian Lady and worn around her neck to give her comfort, as this is of a large size the lady would have been able to clasp it within her hand when being worn as it is so very tactile, this would have been a very special Pendant to the Lady who it belonged to as it is Unique, maybe this was made especially for her as you will never find another like this on the market, it has been loved and worn for over 220 years, if this Pendant could talk i bet it would have some fascinating stories to tell, this is so very tactile and once held it has the most wonderful feel. This will add something very special to any collection, my photos dont do it justice. Please study the photos as this is an extremely rare, as the mark on the mount is very rubbed it has been tested and is 18ct gold, its so extremely rare, a unique piece i believe to have been commissioned especially for someone special in the Georgian period.
