Georgian Carved Coral Charm

Georgian Carved Coral Charm

$156.00Price

Here is a rare and unusual antique coral charm. This likely dates to the late Georgian/Regency period to early Victorian - however, I cannot find a similar example in this shape. The pendant is a little talisman with a slight hook shape that is hand carved from pale reddish-orange coral. This piece features a distinct style of carving that was popular in the Georgian and Victorian periods and referred to as a pineapple cut. Pineapples were, at one point, a status symbol, and the pattern of the pineapple's surface is sometimes referenced in carved antique jewelry (particularly coral and jet). This little charm is well over 100 years old, and it is entirely possible that it was part of a larger jewelry piece at one point. It could be a figural cornucopia, a popular theme for carved coral. Whatever it is, it would look amazing worn on a bracelet or around the neck! The setting at the top has a slight pagoda shape with a Georgian style chasing around the bottom lip. This mysterious little antique talisman is ready to wear or collect! 

 

1.7in (44mm) tall x .4in (12mm) at widest point

The Condition Report

An item must be 100 years old or older to be considered antique. This means many antiques may have age-related wear. We chalk it up to character and love it, but it is essential that we fully describe any wear, no matter how minor. Each piece is carefully inspected, tested, and fully described before it lands in the shop.
