Price range: £5,000-10,000

For sale is this stunning necklace in silver with moonstones, small pearls and  green chrysoprase  by Arthur and Georgie Gaskin. The necklace was exhibited at the Court Barn Museum exhibition on the Gaskins, exhibit J23, and the catalogue entry giving full provenance can be found at this link.   It is marked with the Gaskin’s G motif to the reverse.  The design drawing for this necklace is in the Gaskins’ drawing book held at the V&A (Ref E695-1969).  As with many of their designs the Gaskins gave this piece a name which appears faintly on the drawing, being “Estelle”.

The necklace is in excellent original condition, with a longstanding alteration, possibly extension, to the upper chain only.
