Edwardian "Bird On The Hand" Intaglio Pendant

Edwardian "Bird On The Hand" Intaglio Pendant

$750.00


Description

DATE: Edwardian, 1913

An incredible antique heraldic pendant set with an intaglio carved sardonyx panel with depiction of a hawk perched atop a severed hand - a play on "a bird in the hand" perhaps? It was likely initially conceived as a watch chain fob, however it works just as well styled as a pendant. Crafted in 9 karat gold with inscription "July 2nd 1913" to the reverse.
