Limoges Gold and Enamel Pendant*
French high carat gold pendant with a Limoges enamelled full length portrait of a classical looking young maiden holding in one arm a cornucopia spilling with flowers, leaves and fruits.
In her other hand she holds a single piece of ripe fruit, possibly an apple, and she appears to be celebrating a bountiful harvest.
Beautifully enamelled with flowering plants seen growing in the ground beside her and a dusting of gold in her shawl which is wafting behind her.
The enamelled plaque is concave rather than the more usually seen convex shape and is therefore well protected from accidental knocks when the pendant is worn.
Set in an ornate, almost certainly 18 ct. gold frame with the original matching bale and with a splendid elongated opal bead suspended below.
The pendant, which is unsigned, is supplied in its original fitted case and with a 9 ct. gold necklace chain.
The length, including the bale and opal drop, is 8.5 cm and the chain measures 47 cm.
