French Art Nouveau Brooch Pendant*

Item Description

French Art Nouveau silver and plique-à-jour brooch pendant with the framed profile portrait of  young maiden wearing a large flower in her hair.

The openwork frame curves sinuously with typical whiplash detail and is topped with a pair of large petalled flowers, one on each side.

Inside the frame pale green plique-à-jour enamelling forms a background to the figure of the girl, and the piece is completed with a baroque pearl drop.

Two curved bars on the back enable the chain to be easily removed on those occasions when wearing it as a brooch is preferred.

Marked ‘depose’ and showing a French silver mark, this item looks to have been gilded originally but as to be expected, this is not now obviously apparent.

A fraction below 5.5 cm long with the necklace chain measuring 46 cm.

Under close examination, two of the enamelled cells show some crazing as can be seen from our extreme close-up photographs.
