SOLD Victorian Sterling Silver Bear Necklace
A cute bear pendant from the late Victorian period, c1890s. The pendant is made from sterling silver and is of a hollow construction. The bear has a simple little face and is etched with fur all over his body. To the back, he is marked with a plaque stating he is silver. He is a fairly good size and comes on a silver chain measuring approx 20" long. There is evidence that this bear has been converted from something else and he likely started life as a button.
As you will see in the pictures, there are some earrings that go with this pendant and are being sold separately.
