Early 19 th. C. Signed Italian Portrait of Christ Necklace with Amethyst

An early nineteenth century sacred French porcelain with an exquisite depiction of Jesus creates the important focal element of this necklace. The elaborate collar-like chaining combines additional antique nineteenth century elements of Austro Hungarian filigree panels with Amethyst cabochons alongside ten hand set onyx cabochons. Four bezel set sacred medals are interspersed between the lovely organic links, with two of the larger medals having Amethyst oval cabochon festoon drops. It is important to note the amazing Austro Hungarian clasp.
