Dubrovnik, Silver Wire Pendant, c. 15th-17th Cent, Improbably Perfect!
Fine Silver; 20mm/2.2gm
Con/ Literally As Fabricated; no bends, breaks or missing areas; wearable, cleaned and waxed
Description/ Look at the photos! All those tiny twisted wires are about only 1/2mm!
Seller's Note/ Rather amazing, isn't it? The master silver smiths in the medieval city of Ragusa (modern Dubrovnik) were extraordinary jewelers and this example is a mind-boggling example, as it was all crafted by hand. How it ever survived in this perfect and sublime condition after 500+ years in the ground is truly a one-off miracle, trust me.
