I'm not sure this is an antique but I've never seen anything

Customer Question

I'm not sure this is an antique but I've never seen anything like it. I have an Italian necklace which I purchased from a holiday bazaar. The pendant is a piece of flowered pottery encased in silver, I believe, altho it has a golden hue. The encasement is very ornate, surrounding the pottery with leaves and vines. It is signed on the back in a small square and reads: 999 and the letters SV. It is quite beautiful. Any ideas about it?

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see images of the necklace, pendant portion, clasp and a clear, in-focus close-up of the marks.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

I am wondering if you are still interested in having your item assessed?

Please let me know and do you have requested images available?

I look forward to reading back from you.
