Art Nouveau Limoges Enamelled Pendant by Sarlandie
Lovely Art Nouveau Limoges pendant by the master enameller Jules Sarlandie, dating from circa 1890.
With an ornate frame housing the profile portrait of a pretty young maiden wearing richly coloured clothes embellished with gold. Her long hair, in which she wears a wreath of Laurel leaves, is swept away over her far shoulder and tumbles down her front. The young girl's picture stands out strongly against a dark green leafy background.
Enamelled on to copper, this is a special piece, and close inspection confirms that it is far higher in quality than many of the enamelled portrait pendants that are to be found.
Completed with a delighful baroque pearl drop which balances the overall look perfectly.
The frame has been tested as 18 ct gold and a 9 ct gold chain with a secure clasp is threaded through rings behind.
Signed verso Sarlandie, Limoges, the pendant with its pearl drop measures a fraction under 6.5 cm in length. The chain is approximately 51 cm long.
