This is a wonderful Baroque silver devotional pendant, dating to the 17th century. It contains a Verre églomisé panel reverse painted with a depiction of Eve in the Garden of Eden, standing naked next to a serpent wound around a tree. The back of the pendant contains a silver medal of the Virgin Mary. A nice and original devotional amulet, of an unusual subject!
