Jugendstil Silver and Plique-à-Jour Pendant
German Jugendstil pendant with a shaped outline which graduates into a pair of intertwining stems at the top before descending inside in the form of a pair of stylised leaves.
These frame an elongated oval green stone that looks to be chrysoprase or similar.
Plique-à-jour enamelled in a shade of blackcurrent fills the area between the leaves and the outer frame and the pendant is completed with a good baroque pearl at the drop.
Marked on the back for 800 silver and measuring 4.5 cm including the bale and the drop. The sterling silver necklace chain measures 40 cm in length.
Slight crazing to part of the plique-à-jour but this is only visible under very close examination when held up to a source of light – see final photo.
