Antique sterling silver Charles Horner necklace made in 1911
Charles Horner was an English jeweller who founded Charles Horner of Halifax and became famous for his Dorcas thimbles which were a combination of steel and silver, as well as his Art Nouveau enamel jewellery. Although passing away in 1896, the business was carried on by his two sons James Dobson Horner and Charles Henry HornerÂ along with Charles William Leach, and the jewellery and thimbles made after 1896 are still called Charles Horner pieces. This particular Charles Horner necklace was made in sterling silver and set with vibrant orange paste in a design very typical of the Art Nouveau period.
