Carved Horn Pendant with Gold Detail
French Art Nouveau carved horn pendant by Georges Pierre in the form of a single chrysanthemum flower within a diamond shaped border.
The tapering top section is detailed with 18 ct gold along one edge which extends diagonally across the width just above the stem of the flower.
Above this a partially coiled snake, also in gold, is seen sliding downwards towards the open flower and further gold detail is seen in the little bug, with a ruby set in the centre of its body, which has alighted and is about to savour the flower’s nectar.
Two small turquoise stones together with another ruby are set just below the snake’s head, adding little focal points of colour.
This stunning pendant, the like of which we’ve not seen before, measures just under 17 cm long including the bale. It is on an old 9 ct. gold chain with a length of 63 cm.
Signed verso with the maker’s usual GIP mark.
