Jugendstil Gold Pendant Necklace
German Jugendstil high carat gold pendant necklace from Pforzheim dating from the very early 1900’s.
With a definite nod towards the secessionist movement, the pendant is in three linked shaped sections each with a different outline.
Set with diamonds, rubies and pearls and completed with a small pearl suspended below both the top and bottom components.
The chainwork is original and matches throughout.
Unmarked but very much in the style of Rodi & Wienenberger whose designers included, among others, Georg Kleeman and Franz Boers. The company was founded by Eugen Rodi and Wilhelm Wienenberger in Pforzheim in 1885.
Just a fraction over 7.5 cm long to the bottom of the pearl drop, with the necklace chain measuring 38 cm.
