It is in very good condition. This beauty is hallmarked left of the hanging loop EP for for the famed artist Emile Puiforcat, active in Paris since 1857 at 18, rue Chapon. Above the hanging loop is the word France, and on the right is the French sterling silver hallmark Minerva representing the highest grade of silver 950/1000.
Measures approximately 2 1/2 inches in diameter. This comes with the original pouch, and original Puiforcat ornament box. There are faint scratches consistent with age, use and polishing and a manufacturing defect on the back. As with all vintage silver, may require proper polishing upon receipt depending on your tastes. This would also be a gorgeous, bold pendant.
