Gallant your life will be always, and all of it free."

This necklace is made from the breathtaking illustration by Arthur Rackham for "The Springtide of Life," a rare antique book of children's poems by Algernon Swinburne. The image rests under a 40x30mm (1.6" x 1.2") magnifying globe and is firmly set in a lightly antiqued brass lace edged bezel.

To embellish the romantic nautical themes of the illustration, I have added a small brass ship's helm wheel charm to dangle lightly above the pendant.

This lovely pendant is on a 16" antique brass chain.

*** The last image depicts the original illustration by Arthur Rackham.
