Nice large hand made American arts & crafts Sterling repousse cherries & leaves pin/pendant by The Kalo Shop (Chicago, IL). The piece measures 2" across, and features a dimensional hand hammered and chased repousse design of a potted cherry tree in a round frame with scalloped edges. The bale for hanging the pendant can be folded out of sight if you wish to wear it as a brooch (there is a pin stem and safety clasp on the back). It comes on a 19" Sterling silver chain that may or may not be original (the chain is only marked STERLING). The reverse is signed HAND WROUGHT STERLING KALO. The piece is in very good condition, and is a great example of American Arts & Crafts jewelry.
