A stylish Leo pendant by Italian sculptor,Nino D’Antonio Germano . The 7/8″ round pendant ( without bale) in 18k yellow gold depicting a seated Lion. We show it with a handmade gold chain ( sold separately) but looks great on silver or a gold longchain or very casually on a leather cord. Signed on the Front. 10 g **Nino D’Antonio Germano was born in Rome into the Alfonsi family of jewellers in 1926. His work included the traditional method of lost wax casting, which involved the destruction of the original wax sculpture. The plaster cast from each could only be used a few times which resulted in each of the jewels being made in very limited numbers thus making his work exclusive and of fine quality. Germano focused on Classical themes as his inspiration.
