Jugendstil Silver and Plique-à-Jour Pendant
German Jugendstil silver pendant with pinky-violet plique-à-jour enamelling, set with a central mother-of-pearl plaque and detailed with marcasites at the outer tips of the design.
Completed at the foot with a Mississippi pearl drop and absolutely typical of the style of pendant that was made in Pforzheim in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s by firms such as Levinger & Bissinger and Hermann & Speck.
No maker’s mark however, just the usual Deposé and 900 for the silver content impressed on the back.
A fraction under 5 cm in length including the bale and the drop. The necklace chain which may well be original, is fitted with a square-section barrel type clasp and is approximately 53 cm long.
