Design for a Pendant with Cupid

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 a round central compartment which is filled with square, faceted precious stones and a flower pattern in enamel. Fine openwork made up out of Schweifwerk surrounds the compartment. Three figures are added to the top half of the jewel with Cupid shooting his bow crowning the pendant and a male and female figure on the sides. Below the pendant, in the lower left and right corners, two small scenes have been added. On the left a bull attacking a man who is lying on the ground, and on the right a man on horseback with his sword drawn.
