A Wonderful Antique Victorian Cannetille Necklace, Italian Gold Gilt on 800 Silver, circa 1900. This beautiful antique piece is composed of antique gold gilt over 800 Silver. Cannetille is a process where very fine wire is fashioned into filigree and rosettes to form the most intricate hand-made patterns. The piece is most likely Italian in origin and is estimated to date to the late Victorian Era to early half of the 1900's. The piece has beautiful dangle drops and they are all present with no missing or replaced tassels. The necklace measures about 17 inches long. The length of each piece with the tassel drops is about 1 7/8 inches long. It has such a wonderful presence when worn on the neck. This piece is from an estate collection and is in lovely vintage condition with original patina to the finish, just as a piece of this age should be. A wonderful find.
