A Regency piece .A lovely pendant that has been converted from a button sometime in it's history . I can date it with some certainty as there are some buttons shown in a book called 'Starting to collect Antique Jewellery'-John Benjamin (he of Antique Roadshow fame) The buttons are on p126 if you have a copy of the book handy. There is evidence on the rear of the pendant of the button fixing removal (not done tidily) Rounded back and silver setting (as with most Georgian paste jewellery) Paste is just facetted foiled back glass and the classic black dot can be clearly seen when you look at the stones. I think the conversion has been done in the Victorian period -1870 ish judging by the fixing of the top ring . What more can I say . I have an very strong urge to keep this ,as I love the blue enamel . By the way there is one star missing on the enamel an small parts of others too. I suppose this is to be expected with a piece that is getting on towards 200 years old . I have a chain with in (not silver but its greyness suits the colour of the pendant better ) I would think a ribbon would look better . Strange to think that Jane Austen was not long dead when this button was being worn on a gentlemans coat
Remember it is really a converted button and not a pendant -it is lovely though
Priced to sell -need funds !
