A beautiful devotional silver gilt pendant set with an enamel plaque amidst garnets and paste.  The enamel depticts the Virgin and Child on one side and Saint Francis of Assisi on the other. There is some small loss of metal scrolling on one side. Spanish colonial.
17th or 18th century, the enamel paintings are remeniscent of the Cuzco School in Peru but in a rather naive style.
