French Art Nouveau Silver and Plique-à-Jour Pendant*
Late Art Nouveau French silver and plique-à-jour crescent-shaped pendant with a row of tiny amethysts set in a rectangular box at the top.
The translucent enamel shades from white to pale purple, reflecting the colour of the amethysts. Also set with small clear paste stones and finishing with three long slender drops, the longest sporting a little wing pearl.
A quality piece with thought given to detail such as the gilding of the curved divisions to the enamelled cells and even the intricately fine work to the bale.
Circa 1915-1920, marked sterling and depose on the reverse and just over 5 cm long including the bale and drop. The chain is just over 41cm in length.
