Plique-à-Jour Choker Necklace attr. to Hermann & Speck*

Item Description

Quite beautiful silver gilt and plique-à-jour enamelled choker necklace showing no maker’s mark but firmly attributed to the Pforzheim company of Hermann & Speck.

Five rectangular openwork plaques, each decorated with a plique-à-jour flower and pair of leaves in shades of blue graduating to pink, are connected at equal distances by a series of seven lengths of chain.

At the base of each flower stem a faceted square pink glass stone is set, adding further colour and detail.

The final plaque has an upright tube type receptacle to receive the pin attached to the end of the chain, ensuring an effective and very secure clasp.

Late 1800’s to early 1900’s.  The total length is 35 cm and the height of the floral plaques is 2.5 cm.
