Jugendstil Gold and Plique-à-Jour Pendant
Very lovely German Jugendstil 18 ct. gold pendant featuring the portrait in profile of a young woman, her hair in a chignon and with her left hand touching her right shoulder.
The portrait is set against a plique-à-jour enamelled background, divided into a number of randomly shaped cells in a frosted pearly shade.
Somewhat heart-shaped in outline and set with tiny diamonds at the three corners and in the drop below. A little faceted ruby sits centrally immediately above the girl’s image and the pendant is further decorated with pearls, one being at the foot of the drop.
No marks but almost certainly from one of the Pforzheim based craftsmen and dating circa 1900 or perhaps a little earlier.
Including the decorative bale and the drop, the pendant is 5 cm in length, with the 9 ct. gold fine necklace chain measuring 40 cm.
