Antique Niello Silver Necklace
SOLD

This French chain is silver and the design is niello. Niello is a process of fusing sulphur,copper,lead and silver. The fused metals are then poured onto the incised silver, The patterns created are both distinctive and beautiful. The contrast with rose gold vermeil links is the perfect foil.

This chain once a watch chain, is now a necklace. The niello spring ring is joined with the niello dog clip and voila, a perfect transformation. The chain measures 17 inches long X 1/4 inches wide. Both the pattern and the intricate design are wonderful. Note the use of the rose gold within the links, creating a bow motif. Condition is excellent. It has a mark of 800 silver. France, circa 1890
