A stunner, early Deco Flli Coppini pendant necklace, this piece is not only holding a beautiful St. George slaying the Dragon medallion but it's adorned with a multitude of figural charms. Combinations like this are very hard to find and as the example at hand is wrought in .800 silver, it dates most probably in the pre-1934 period, when the sterling standard had not been yet adopted by the Italian authorities. Measuring 27 3/4" long the chain has a total of 9 charms, many related to the history of Rome or representing architectural treasures / symbols from other Italian cities. The pendant itself is just shy of 2" tall (including the bail) by 1 7/16" wide and it adds a 2 1/4" drop to the chain. The necklace weighs 82.8 grams and is signed with the Coppini name and logo as well as "800" and "MADE IN ITALY". In excellent vintage condition with stunning presence and great patina; I think the spring ring of the clasp is a later replacement but that is also marked "STERLING".
