Man-in-the-moon

Man-in-the-moon

No I haven’t been stalking galaxies, though it is interesting to see a few of these rare little moon-face pieces appearing, when I had not seen one for a year or more. This 18 carat gold pendant / brooch, circa 1900, is set with a carved moonstone smiling man-in-the-moon with a dimpled chin and is set within a surround of foliage and cabochon sapphires. It measures 1 and 1/4 inches by one inch. Well carved and immaculate.
