Double Sided Turquoise Pendant Sterling Silver Poison Locket Middle EasternVintage finely crafted sterling silver hidden compartment pendant featuring two rich blue turquoise stones. Hand worked, unsigned, unmarked, this is a very lovely pendant with a unique design that can be worn as a pendant or added to a sterling pocket watch chain for a unique Fob.
The stones in this have fissures, minor loses and the darker blue lines on the hinged side is a material used to fill cracks. These all look to be natural imperfections that would result from compression. Most likely Palestine or Israel in origin as many of the other pieces purchased at this estate were from this area. This was heavily tarnished so I gave it a polish.
