A charming antique pendant from the Edwardian era, c1905! The pendant is made of 9ct gold. A subdued yellow gilding coats the rose gold beneath, which embraces a subtle time-worn, but lovely two-tone antiquity look. The pendant started it's life as a brooch and since has been converted into a unique pendant due to an injured rear pin.

The pendant is steeped with oodles of Australian history; Patriotic jewellery was made to commemorate the Federation of Australia (also known as the Commonwealth of Australia) that was formed on January the 1st, year 1901. Many stick pins, brooches and pendants were made to commemorate this special event.

The pendant features a 'map of Australia' detailed with hand engraving of 'Australia', and lines denoting state borders, and includes rivers. It appears the island state of Tasmania has been forgotten about (once again!). A wishbone profile surrounds the map of Australia and there is wire scroll decorating in between the map of Australia and a single star profile to the top. A little white seed pearls rests in the star. The loop for the chain to slide through forms from behind the wishbone top, giving a contemporary twist to the pendant. Artfully unique!

The piece is stamped to the reverse, "9c" denoting 9ct gold and "M" which is possibly the makers mark of Mackay & Co Jewellers of Brisbane, Australia (c1902 - late 20th century)

A wonderful pendant for the avid Australian antique jewellery collector. Perfect for a token of Australia for the traveler or a gift for the homesick working abroad!

Early Edwardian, c1905

one white seed pearl

The pendant remains in beautiful antique condition. Besides a small cavity to the reverse of the pendant, (where the injured pin once was), the upcycled pendant remains in excellent antique condition, with no apparent dents or scratches. A wonderful upcycled antique pendant!
