Limoges 18ct. Gold Portrait Pendant
French Art Nouveau pendant in 18 ct. gold with a very fine Limoges enamel on copper plaque featuring a half-length portrait of a lady.
She’s wearing a green robe and a blue and green headdress in medieval style and is captured in profile with her back slightly towards us.
The elongated heart-shaped image stands out strongly against a deep red background and is contained within a fine gold frame.
At the top the pendant is decorated with an elegantly sweeping design feature and below no less than six little pearls form an extended drop.
Signed on the reverse by the artist Gandois, Limoges, the pendant measures a little under 8 cm long to the bottom of the drop and is attached to a 9 ct. gold chain with a length of approximately 44 cm.
