This pendant, made by Carlo Giuliano, may have been shown at the international exhibition in Paris in 1867. An identical pendant was displayed at the exhibition by the jeweller and silversmith, Harry Emanuel and illustrated in the Art Journal magazine.
Carlo Giuliano was born in Naples and worked for some time in the Rome workshops of Alessandro Castellani before coming to London in about 1860. He worked almost exclusively for the trade supplying firms such as Harry Emanuel, Hunt and Roskell and C.F. Hancock until he opened retail premises in Picadilly in 1874.
