Jugendstil Pendant from Pforzheim*
Jugendstil silver pendant with three descending leafy clusters plique-à-jour enamelled in green shading to pink, each highlighted with a little synthetic pearl at its centre.
The leaves sit over the lower part of the openwork frame of the pendant which continues upwards in a shaped manner and is set with further synthetic pearls and a single faceted green stone, possibly a peridot.
Complete and original throughout and very typical of the work of Hermann & Speck, although the impressed marks found on two of the fixed rings are difficult to decipher.
Circa 1900 and 5 cm. in length with the chain measuring approximately 39 cm.
