Hermann & Speck Plique-à-Jour Pendant*
Delighfully pretty Jugendstil silver and plique-à-jour pendant designed by Karl Heinrich Hermann and made by the firm of Hermann & Speck in Pforzheim between 1902 and 1906.
Essentially oval in outline with two fans or perhaps lotus flowers, one slightly overlapping the other, and both plique-à-jour enamelled in a shade of pinky mauve.
Little seed pearls embellish the delicate openwork design and a small stone, matching the colour of the enamel, is placed just off centre. The pendant is completed with a cased pearl drop.
Marked on the back with the entwined HS maker’s mark and 900 silver content.
The length including the bale and drop is approximately 6 cm. On a sterling silver chain measuring 41 cm long.
