Item Description / Dealer Expertise

The peacock was one of Ashbee's favourite and most distinctive motifs. They are archetypal of the best and most innovative of the Guild of Handicrafts work.
Ashbee designed peacock jewels in varying styles and materials, two of them on display in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London from about 1900 are made of silver or silver gilt mainly set with blister pearls. This Ashbee peacock pendant is extremely rare because of the unusual colour combination of the opals, enamel and peridot
