Arts & Crafts Enamelled Portrait Pendant
Quite splendid and extremely striking upright oval pendant featuring a beautifully enamelled portrait in profile of a young noblewoman.
Probably French in origin and dating from the late 19th. century, the gently contoured enamelled plaque has been carefully claw set into a fine silver mount, almost certainly by one of the unsung heroes of the Arts & Crafts movement here in England.
Silver wirework detail to the outside edge is topped with a pair of acanthus type leaves, with little garnet cabochons set at their tips.
Three small flowers adorn the outside edges of the wirework frame, the top two testing as sodalite and the lower one being a carnelian.
Complete with its original dedicated bale and with a very fine Art Nouveau necklace chain which suits the pendant perfectly.
The plaque, which is counter enameled on the back, measures 6.5 cm by a fraction over 5 cm and the pendant, including the bale, is 9 cm in length.
The necklace chain is 55 cm long.
