Art Nouveau Gold and Plique-à-Jour Pendant*
Lovely French Art Nouveau pendant crafted from 14 ct. gold into the form of a flowering plant, spreading upward and outwards from its bulb and roots at the base.
In the centre of the open flower is set a diamond, with all the open areas in between being plique-à-jour enamelled in a natural shade of green, some graduating to just a touch of pale blue. This is more apparent when looking with the light shining through the pendant from behind – see photo 5.
No maker’s mark but clearly marked 14 k on the reverse.
5 cm long, including the bale, with the necklace chain measuring 44 cm.
