Antique French Holly Compact Pendant Locket

$ 650.00

Holly has long been associated with Christmas and the holiday season. Its legendary status goes back to the Druids who thought that it had properties of fertility and eternal life due to the fact that it stayed green all winter and survived even the harshest conditions. Later Christians adopted Holly as symbolic of Christ, the holly’s pointed leaves represented the crown of thorns and its red berries symbolized the drops of blood that Jesus shed on the way to the cross.

This fantastic Art Nouveau powder box pendant is repoussed with an image of a holly leaf and berries. The pendant was originally made to hold face powder and comes complete with a mirrored lid and its original feather powder puff. This pendant measures 45.1 mm north to south and 37.1 mm across, it’s 17.8 mm thick, it is marked with the French boars head mark for silver and weighs 21.6 grams with the chain. The locket comes on a 23 inch long hand crafted silver chain. Made in France around 1890.
