Victorian black pressed Glass Head & Silver Necklace.
An antique Victorian piece of pressed glass has been transformed into a beautiful necklace. The head is probably based on an original classical image. The glass moulded head has been surrounded with a silver cuff and hung from a solid silver 18" chain.
Pressed glass is made by using a plunger to press molten glass into a mold. It was patented in America in 1825 and the technique quickly spread to Europe and was most popular in France, Bohemia, and Sweden.
