Carved Horn Fuschia Pendant*
French Art Nouveau carved horn pendant in the form of a single fuschia flower and leaves framed within a branch like triangular border.
The necklace is totally authentic being on its original cord and complete with all the glass beads and spacers and its elongated drop that were in place when it was crafted circa 1900.
According to the Macklowe Gallery book ‘Nature Transformed’ where it is illustrated on page 52, this was a design by Elizabeth Bonté. However the signature on the back of this pendant, although somewhat difficult to read, looks to be Lois who presumably was one of the craftspeople in Bonté’s workshop.
There is a little inevitable wear to the cord but we have not been tempted to have it restrung, preferring to maintain its authenticity.
The length, including the drop, is 10.5 cm and the width is 6 cm.
