Please excuse the redundancy in my description. But I have hundreds of these vintage findings that I acquired recently at an estate sale of a woman who made jewelry. I was lucky enough to know exactly what the funny little boxes of odd and bits were. To others, I'm sure it looked like a bunch of junk. But to me? Well, the skies opened up, rays of sunshine came down upon me as I heard the heavenly angels sing out in choir. The findings and settings in these listings are all unused vintage stock, meaning they are new but old — an oxymoron, I know, but true. My guesstimate would be 1970 and before. I am ecstatic to be able to offer them to all you talented people. And as vintage things go, when these are gone they're gone, and there ain't no getting no mo'!
This listing is for one very unique crystal pendant or finial. Metal is filigree-style, gold-plated brass, bright, and untarnished. The stone has a faceted teardrop shape with an AB coating glued in a cone-shaped stem and riveted to an open cage-style base. There are no chips, cracks, or scratches. The base is designed to be attached with wire and has many scalloped loops around the edge. It measures 3/4" wide (19 mm) and 1 9/16" tall (40 mm). The crystal is 7/16" (11 mm) wide x 5/8" (16 mm) tall. The stem is 3/8" (10 mm) wide x 7/16" (12 mm) tall. The base is 3/4" (19 mm) wide and 7/16" (12 mm) tall.
