Description

Crown bar and loop of the cross with St. Petersburg mark of fineness for "56" zolotniki and master’s mark "IO" for Ivan Osipov. The loop punched with year cypher "1867". Medallion on the obverse with small cracks, the black enamel chipped in parts. The crown of this high-quality item is of particularly impressive plasticity and charm with its old-style frame construction and finest enamel painting. It was presumably owing to the fashion at that time that these decorations were completely executed in black rather than with red enamel. Length 78 mm, width 48 mm. Weight 23 g. Rare.

Condition:II -
