Description: A rare antique spiral pendant from Morocco. The spiral, symbol of eternity, is often found in traditional Moroccan jewellery, but it is very rare to find an antique pendant of this quality and size. The silver will have been hammered out to flatten it (unlike modern spiral pendants which are made with mechanically milled silver) and the delicate spiral design carefully chased by hand. Traditionally, silver jewellery in Morocco was 80% pure, rather than the 92.5% purity of sterling silver.  SOLD

Price: Price shown is for one pendant. There is only one of this item available.

Overall height: 90mm approx. including loop.
