Design for a Pendant with the Alphabet

Master P.R.K Dutch

Not on view

Design for a pendant in fine goldsmiths work. The pendant is hanging from a ribbon and has an oval central compartment in which the alphabet has been placed. The letters J, V and W are missing. Below it is the signature of the Master PRK combined with the date of publishing. Surrounding the compartment are four small enameled fields and fine openwork made up out of Schweifwerk. Three figures are added to the top half of the jewel with a Bacchus figure holding up a tazza crowning the pendant.
