Painter’s Palette Pendant*
Impressive silver pendant in the form of a painter’s palette, made in Pforzheim, Germany circa 1910.
With plique-à-jour enamelling and a pattern of diamonds criss-crossing the surface, together with two larger diamonds set at the centres of the enamelled flowers.
Attached to a knotted silk cord and with a matching long silk tassel.
The final photograph in our sequence shows the pendant lit from behind.
A delightfully pretty piece of jewellery, the pendant measures 6.5 cm long by a little under 4 cm wide. The tassel adds another 10 cm to the length and the cord is approximately 65 cm long.
