A fabulous vintage sterling silver pendant in a cut out design depicting a majestic Scottish Highland stag framed by a bead work border. This type of cut out jewellery technique is known as pierce-work or ajouré and it gives a lovely open effect.
The pendant has a wide built in bale that slopes backwards so it sits well when worn and it suspends from a sterling silver Italian belcher chain. It is in excellent condition with minimum wear.
In Celtic myth and religion, the stag personifies the power of the Other World (realm of the dead and/or the Gods), the forest and untamed nature generally.
Wonderful piece that is ready to wear right out of the box, it would make a unique gift for a man or a woman who loves the outdoors and if you like Scottish themed jewellery this is a great piece for you!
