Part of set (or parure) consisting of a necklace, brooch and pendant made from multi-colored glass micromosaic medallions depicting flowers, birds and crosses interspersed with gold leaves. The medallions have gold tear-drop-shaped pendants.
Before his marriage, Captain Richard Tucker toured Europe in 1857, where he acquired jewelry for his future wife, Mollie, including this set. After the family's fortunes suffered a downturn, Mollie struggled to maintain her lifestyle, reinforcing the necklace pendants with gold-colored thread after the original gold connectors began to break.
