Similar to MS4021. Four female headed amphorae surmounted by rosettes, three backless, beaten acorns, and a beaten backless bird (dove?). The two sides of the necklace join on a rather heavy pendant in the shape of a hollow, truncated cone on either side of which is a double spiral of plain wire. There is a large sphere in each spiral. Suspended from the cone but now broken away is a clear green glass cone with gold leaf applied to the join. The leaf is embossed with circles and dots. Rather poor condition.
