A gold moonstone and amethyst pendant by Liberty & Co

Price range: £1,000-5,000

A large gold, moonstone and amethyst pendant dating to c. 1910.  The design, very similar in style to the Artificers Guild, is infact by Liberty & Co  and appears in the Liberty Jewellery sketch book number 9274.  The pendant is set with really stunning, positively edible, moonstones and complimentary, subtle, purple cabochon amethysts.

Based on the design I am confident in attributing it to Bernard Cuzner, the Birmingham School of Art head of metalwork who designed much of Liberty’s silver after c. 1906 and, similarly, I think much of their jewellery. I have included an illustration of a Bernard Cuzner necklace from the Studio 1914, exhibiting a similar design also in the style of the Artificers Guild. Cuzner designed leaves with the same distinctive profiled, long central stem/vein.

The pendant condition is excellent.  The gold chain is modern.
