Art Nouveau Silver and Plique-à-Jour Iris
French Art Nouveau silver pendant with a removable chain enabling to also be worn as a brooch.
In the form of iris flowers and two little leaves either side of a centrally set red stone.
The open areas in between the silverwork have been plique-à-jour enamelled in green and mauve, and at the foot is suspended a natural baroque pearl.
Hooks fitted to each end of the chain can quite easily be detached converting it instantly to a brooch.
Some inevitable crazing to the plique-à-jour but otherwise in lovely condition.
Circa 1900 and just a touch under 4 cm in length including the drop, with a width of 3.5 cm.
The necklace chain is 47 cm long.
