The greyhound has been hand painted by a skilled artist and sits upon a coloured back drop. The dog has lots of character in its face and was perhaps a beloved pet to the pendants original owner.
The gallery is fashioned in Silver with Gold rims and at the back a locket can be found containing a curled lock of brown hair which belonged to a loved one from long ago and kept safe and well preserved behind a glass window.
