An exceptional Victorian mermaid pendant by Reinhold Vasters. Crafted in circa 1875, this very fine example of Renaissance Revival jewellery features the form of a mermaid depicted in yellow gold, enamel, pearl and emerald. She holds a detailed enamel mirror to her face and is suspended from an intricate gold, pearl and enamel chain, with a decorative panel featuring an old mine cut Colombian emerald, surrounded by colourful enamel scrolls.
This lavish and rare creation displays extraordinary attention to detail and craftsmanship. From the portrait cut diamond portraying the glass inside of the mirror, to the pink gem set into the mermaid's headband, it is full of surprises that will charm forever.
Reinhold Vasters was a controverisal goldsmith who became renowned for his Renaissance jewellery style. His work was exhibited at the Grand Exhibition of 1851, which was presented by Prince Albert.
