Art Nouveau Silver and Plique-à-Jour Mirror Pendant
Art Nouveau silver pendant with an elegantly shaped outline enclosing the profile portrait of a young girl holding in her hand an open flower.
Further flowers and leaves encircle her against a background plique-à-jour enamelled in a shade of green.
The pendant slides open in either direction to reveal a mirror.
A little confusingly it is marked on the reverse both sterling and 935 – if 935 then it has a very slightly higher silver content than sterling’s 925.
Also engraved on the back with the name Ulla, who was obviously an owner at some time in the past.
Circa 1900 and showing no maker’s mark but we are sure it is either Austrian or German in origin.
The pendant and bale measure 5.5 cm long and the necklace chain is a good length at 69 cm.
