Pendant and Chain
Arthur Gaskin (1862-1928) and Georgie Gaskin (1868-1934)
Silver set with abalone shell amd colored gemstones cut au cabochon, including amethysts and tourmalines.
Marked on on the reverse with an applied letter G. The flat boldly executed leaves, lacking the Gaskins's usual delicacy, suggest a very early work.
