Art Nouveau Silver & Plique-à-Jour Pendant
Pendant dating from the Art Nouveau era that we believe to be Continental in origin and possibly French.
With a shaped outline and stylised foliate look, the pendant is divided into a number of cells which are filled with plique-à-jour enamel in a shade of green, all except for the droplet shaped one at the base which is in blue.
Tiny pink stones are set at top and bottom with an even tinier seed pearl at top centre.
There is some inevitable crazing to some of the cells which is mainly confined to the top left area, but the pendant is still very wearable and this looks worse in the photos than it does ‘in the flesh’.
Including the bale, the length is 5 cms. with the necklace chain measuring approximately 42 cms. long.
