Antique” Pendant

Florence Koehler loved old objects and was particularly fascinated by ancient Greek culture. She always wore a Greek-looking pendant around her neck, and added finishes to her objects to make them look older. Each pendant has a face cut in relief, and the Antique” Pendant is inscribed with a name, Ottora Maria. (Laurie Eglington Kaldis, ed., Portrait of an Artist, 1947)
