Superb Antique 19th C Austro Hungarian Bachruch 800 Silver Filigree Necklace For Sale
19th C Antal Bachruch Austro-Hungarian 800 Silver NecklaceYou are viewing a Superb Antique Antal Bachruch 800 Silver Filigree Necklace from Austria-Hungary. Antal Bachruch was an important silver and jewelry retailer and importer located in Budapest at the turn of the 19th/20th Century, succeeded later by the firm "A. Bachruch succ." This early Bachruch piece is simply amazing in it's fine craftsmanship. I believe this necklace was used for perfume/scent, but I'll leave that determination to the experts out there. As you can see in the photos provided, the beautifully beaded end piece unscrews, allowing one to remove the two intricate flower-shaped filigree end pieces. Besides the screw hole at the bottom of the pendant, there are two holes located at the top near the bale..suggesting it's use for perfumes. The bale is stamped BACHRUCH and also has the Austria-Hungary Hallmark for 800 Silver dating from the time period 1867 - 1922. This Hallmark is a dogs head within a cartouche or coffin. There's a 3 to the left of the dog's ear and a P near the dog's nose. I believe the P is the city letter, standing for PEST. The chain measures 24 1/2" in length. It also has the 800 Silver dog head mark with a 3, an RA maker's mark and another mark with a P and a 4. The chain is magnificent. It features a wonderful interlocking swirl design (please see photos). This is a substantial necklace weighing 29.01 Total Grams! I believe this necklace dates from the mid to late 1800's.
