Victorians loved coral and commonly presented it as gifts for babies and new brides believing that it could ward off danger and protect the wearer.
This marvelous hand-carved angel skin coral maple leaf (circa 1860-1880) is versatile in design and can be worn either as a pendant or a brooch.
The pendant is 2.8 inches long (from the top of the bail to the tip of the leaf) and 2.4 inches wide, and it has a removable bail.
We are selling the piece with a black suede necklace with a sterling silver clasp. The condition is very good.
