Art Nouveau Carved Horn Moth Pendant
French Art Nouveau carved horn pendant in the form of a moth which has alighted on a circular twig and folded its wings, partially covering its blue turquoise matrix like body.
On the original cord with six knotted beads of differing shapes and sizes and with a long shaped black glass bead forming the drop.
Unsigned but a good example and very typical of the horn jewellery that was all the rage in the Paris of the early 1920’s.
The length of the pendant is 11 cm including the drop and the necklace cord measures approximately 69 cm.
