Victorian Pearl & Gold Lucky Pig Pendant

Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1870

So at some stage in the 19th century someone got their hands on this amorphous baroque pearl and thought: "that looks like a pig's body and legs". And went on to create a gold head and tail to complete the idea. Very bizarre, but here it is. It's crafted 18 karat gold and dates to c.1870.
