Antique 18 Karat Gold European Art Nouveau Virgin Mary Heart Shaped Pendant, c.1910

   The most famous flea market in Paris is the one at Porte de Clignancourt. I go to Les Puces (the fleas) every time I set foot in that old town, even if just for a stroll. Last time I found this antique 18 karat gold Virgin Mary pendant. It has the words 'Virgo Virginum" meaning 'Virgin of Virgins' around a right-sided profile of Mary with a halo. The backside has a capital 'M' resting on a cloud as if in heaven. Two beautiful lily flowers frame the profile of the Virgin Mary and form the heart-shaped pendant. I fell hard for the gorgeous Art Nouveau styling of this fantastic pendant!

     This antique pendant was handcrafted around 1910, perhaps in France although it bears no marks.  We've carefully acid tested it to verify that it is made of 18 karat gold. It measures one inch (25.4 mm) from N to S, 13/16" from E to W (20.6 mm), is 1.8 mm thick, and weighs 5 grams.
