This is a fabulous sterling silver and enamel necklace by David Andersen, c. 1900 - 1925. The necklace is in really excellent condition with no loss of damage to the enamel and it retains a very light gold wash. It measures 16 1/2" long, is 3/8" wide and the shoe drop is 1 1/4" (inc. jumpring) x 3/8". The shoe is marked "925", "S" and bears an early Andersen mark used from 1888 - 1925. The 925 mark (for sterling) as opposed to 830, leads me to believe the necklace dates closer to the early 1920s, however "The Online Encyclopedia of Silver Marks" (www.925-1000.com) pictures a pin with the same design and dates it to 1900. It is very unusual to find pieces by David Andersen with this kind of age - and to find one in such excellent condition is even rarer.
