  • Title: Victorian Civil War Era LADY LIBERTY? Girl Bonnet 18k 14k Gold Antique Amethyst Painting Necklace & Pin
  • Description: You are now offerding on a spectacular antique 18k & 14k gold hand painted amethyst necklace. I don't know where to start with this extraordinary piece…we have never owned anything quite like this before! This consists of a necklace that is handcrafted in 18k gold (ca. 1830's to 1850's), featuring a large faceted amethyst stone that has been painted with the ethereal image of a woman that appears to be a Greek Goddess. She is very beautiful with large, expressive eyes and soft, full features that indicate youth. A crown of sorts is on her head that has a Lady Liberty -esqe appearance. The addition of natural seed pearls decorating the frame adds a regal quality & the 14k gold fancy rolo link chain was a later conversion - probably around the 1890's or so. It is not uncommon for jewelry this old to have been repaired / altered. The piece shows some surface scratches consistent with age. I took numerous images for you to judge for yourself, but I think you will agree this is quite amazing! A genuine heirloom collectible.

    Our sale estimates for this are between $1500 to $2000 but we offer with ! Please look at all the pics carefully. Good luck buyers! Please visit our other sales for great antiques and terrific timepieces!
