Art Deco Silver, Green Paste ​& Marcasite Pendant on Chain

Sold

25C/OJ

A good looking Art Deco silver, paste and graded marcasite pendant composed of a large octagonal green paste to imitate an emerald. This amazing paste even has inclusions in it. A firm called Harold A. Lazarus invented a method to create such inclusions and produced exquisite paste jewellery in the earlier Georgian style of the 1800s. The firm was in business from about 1900-1960. This pendant could well have been made by Lazarus in the 1920s.
