Описание в каталоге

The use of the baroque pearl demonstrates the skill of the jeweller to adapt nature to a work of art.  Such pendants were popular from the second half of the 16th century in particular in Spain and Germany and the Netherlands . Note in particular the design by Nacis Amat of 1605 in the Llibres des Passanties illustrated by Muller ( op.cit. fig 142. Note also the naturalistic  anatomical detailing to the underside of the lion.
