Art Nouveau Silver and Plique-à-Jour Pendant*
Continental silver pendant in the Egyptian revival style taking the form of a stylised flying scarab, its outspread upright wings plique-à-jour enamelled in a shade of green.
In the centre, an oval mother-of-pearl plaque represents the insect’s body, while above and below it is holding in its grip circular chrysoprase cabochons.
On close examination there is some slight crazing to a couple of the enamelled cells, as is so often the case with these old pliques, but the enamel is quite sound.
Marked Deposé on the reverse and measuring just a little below 5 cm long including the bale.
Dating from the early 1920’s.
