J. Aitkin Enamelled Pansy Pendant*
Art Nouveau silver and enamel pendant in the form of a pansy flower by the Birmingham maker J. Aitkin & Son whose workshop was located in Spencer Street in that city.
Subtly three-dimensional, with the outline following the edges of the petals and vibrantly enamelled in shades of violet with a golden yellow and white centre.
The veins of the petals are beautifully detailed and the fine silver line around each petal adds to the look of quality.
Suspended from an oval ring on two short lengths of chain and finished below with a nicely shaped drop finished in matching colours.
Impressed on the reverse with the JA&S maker’s mark together with a Birmingham hallmark for the year 1918.
The flower is just over 2.5 cm wide, the length from the suspender ring to the bottom of the drop is 7 cm and the necklace chain is approximately 46 cm long.
