19th century pottery chard pendant in sterling silver - Far Reaching Story
Regular priceSale price
Pottery always has a story from the past. If it was made in a place other than Australia then someone brought it here to use. Who, why, where and when? We can make up any story that suits us accept china has a date where it may be placed.
This pendant is made with a piece from a Pottery Bowl or cup, found at St Albans, NSW. I suspect it was made in Sydney around 1860 and is "Temple II" ware. It was used by the first settlers around that area and may still have been in use by 1930.
Set into a Sterling Silver basket, It is floating but strongly held inside. The vintage chains are sterling silver and other alloys mostly from the 60s and 70s.
The chard is 6.5cm in length and 5.5cm wide. As a whole pendant it is 16cm long including the recycled and vintage sterling silver chain.
It hangs on a Solid Sterling silver chain which is 62cm long.
