Antique venus style charm necklace
Antique Venus style charm necklace
This necklace was handmade using a combination of new and antique materials. It features an unusual and mysterious antique golden pendant with a venus-like nude figure of a woman holding what appears to be a winged statue while standing on a stylized fish with swimmers in the background. The back has a lovely floral design. I believe it is from the Art Deco era or earlier and was likely a competitive swimmer's medal. It is on a new gold-filled chain which has been finished with a gold-filled spring clasp and a brass hexagon loop.
The pendant measures 1" and the chain is 20" long.
Condition: Some darkening to the metal at the top where it was soldered to the loop long ago.
This charm was found at a flea market while treasure hunting on the East Coast.
