Unknown country of origin

Postby mintymin » Wed Apr 01, 2020 4:23 pm

Hi all
I hope you are all keeping ok.
I am getting chance to go through some jewellery and the pieces I know nothing about
It’s a cameo or woman’s face (I think a woman) on one side and a building on the other It has hallmarks I cant recognise and wonder if anyone had any information about where it may be from? The marks are quite vague and just say C2 and B-108? At first I thought Italy but just can’t seem to find these marks in any sites
All help gratefully received as always
Thanks you
Mintymin

Hi,

Just to get the ball rolling, It's Spanish, from Barcelona.

Because of that information Trev. I have now found the monastery on one side. It is Monserrat monastery 45 km from Barcelona

The Black Madonna Montserrat seems like a possibility for the women on the front of this piece. I wouldn't have guessed anything if it wasn't for the progress that was made ahead of me.
