Silver and Enamel Pendant by Smith & Ewen*
Shield-shaped English Art Nouveau silver pendant necklace with enamelling in a vivid shade of green.
The edges at top and bottom both curve inwards forming a very attractive shaped detail, and the lower half is further enamelled with two narrow blue stripes running down the centre, directly beneath a silver fleur de lys motif.
A small drop with a dot of blue enamel completes a very pleasing overall design.
The 46 cm chain is attached on the original silver bale. The pendant and its drop have a combined length of 4 cm.
Hallmarked Birmingam 1909 and with a partial maker’s mark which looks to be for Smith & Ewen who were located at Frederick Street in the same city.
