People Who Like People Jewellery

Just a random sampling of figural jewellery that I’ve come across over the years. Above is a French Ivory (celluloid) pendant of a 1920s-era couple. Dig his dancing slippers!

Below is an 18K and ebony Moretti or Blackamoor pendant from the 1950s or 60s. These figurals are mostly made in Venice, and are considered to have talismanic powers.

Next, a Walrus Ivory Inuit-carved brooch, no longer in my possession.

And lastly, a hand-painted miniature (either Persian or Indian) of two ladies. The background is mother of pearl. Another great piece that I sadly sold during one of my periodic purges.
