An exquisite old pendant from Awadh
Note the very pretty and unusual butterfly wing shape
Sapphire, polki, rubies set in gold.
The stringing is not original and is a recent addition.
Update: We have now arranged with a fine-art shipper to ship out gold jewelry.
This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
