5/8” height, formed as a fruit with lattice surface, perhaps the precursor of the hybrid artichoke. Fruit and vegetables are abundantly illustrated in Roman paintings and frescoes. For the upper class, dining was a cultural exercise and the rooms reserved for it were often decorated with harvest and food preparation scenes. It follows, then, that wearing a fruit pendant would be appropriate in such a context. Professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
