Description

Pasty pendant (small) – a small, polished Cornish tin pasty on a sterling silver curb chain.

The Cornish pasty is a simple and delicious pastry turnover filled with chopped meat, potatoes and vegetables and crimped around the edge.
It originated in Cornwall, where it served as meal for miners descending the shafts of the old tin mines.
Cornish tin mines contained arsenic and copper. Therefore, it was an advantage to the miner that they could hold the pasty by the convenient ‘handle’ and not contaminate their meal. The crimped edge was then discarded.

The discarded crust was also said to keep the Cornish pixies happy! Some wives filled one corner of the pasty with jam or fruit so that it provided both a main course and dessert. They then marked it with their husband’s initials so that the miners would know whose pasty it was.

Width: 8mm Height: 17mm Chain length: 18 inch (45cm)

Supplied in a satin lined and recyclable gift box.
