This remarkable piece has so many notable features: the top panel of folded & intricately-pierced silver is backed within its shadow box frame by a piece of glass mirror; the centre panel features an oxidized piece of even more finely cut silver and the bottom fringe part pivots around its top post and the individual fringe pieces are all freely moving. The neck ring portion is expertly shaped and is nicely substantial. It also features a very clever catch which opens at the front at the top of one of the pendant posts.
