Art Nouveau Pendant attr. to Georges Le Turcq*

Item Description

Superb French Art Nouveau high carat gold brooch pendant, unsigned but attributed to Georges Le Turcq.

The elegant and fluid outline encloses a narrow shield-shape bordered on each side with a mirrored pair of green plique-à-jour enamelled slender, tapering leaves. 

In the centre are three open flowers, enamelled in blue, each with a diamond in its centre. The flowers are on long sweeping gold stems and sit against a background of pale violet-pink plique-à-jour enamelling set in little individual cells which darken towards the bottom.

Beneath, inside the lower point of the shield, is a detail that looks to be five small seedpods on downward pointing slender stems, enamelled in deep red.

At the foot, the drop comprises another small diamond set just above a natural pearl.

A removable pin on the back allows this lovely piece to be worn as either a brooch or a pendant, depending on the wearer’s preference. 

Supplied in a fitted case from Collingwood of Conduit Street, London, W1, appointed jewellers to Her Majesty the Queen.

Very early 1900’s and measuring 6.75 cm to the bottom of the pearl drop.  The 9 ct. gold necklace chain is 52 cm long.

Lit:  Georges Le Turcq by Jean Jacques Richard, p.33, where  a brooch resembling this one in style is illustrated.
