Sterling Silver Decorative Peacock 18 Natural Garnets

Handcrafted decorative Sterling Silver Peacock wearing 18 tail feathers set with fine quality, natural Garnet "Eyes" -- 9 Mozambique Garnets (red), and 9 rare Tsavorite Garnets (green), each at 2.5mm, prong-set in Sterling Silver. Each component of the several distinct designs within the bird is intricately handmade, hand-coiled, and hand-soldered. Two marks have been found, one on a Sterling Tab on an uppermost verso tail feather reading "925," signifying "Sterling;" the other, an illegible signature just above the left facing leg (no closeup).

Tail span is 5.50" (13.97cm), overall height is 4.50" (11.43cm), and depth is about 2" (5.08cm).

We suggest origin is Spain, with a circa date of 1920. Condition is excellent. The peacock has its own quilted, green velvet presentation box, not pictured. $28 US Shipping.

PEACOCK AS A SYMBOL, carries the meanings of power, beauty, and knowledge.
