Subject:Copper Pendant with applied silver& gold accents
Posted By: doreen Tue, Oct 24, 2017 IP:

Any information about this pendant is most gratefully appreciated.
* 1 3/16" tall 3/4" at widest point.
* Most probably copper with applied silver and gold detailing.
* Raised writing on back is quite worn but perhaps still readable.
Thank you for looking in.
