Silver and Enamel Pendant by William J. Holmes
Art Nouveau shied shaped silver pendant highlighted with three richly enamelled panels decorated with silver detail.
The enamelled areas are divided by a tapering beaded cross which curves gently downwards. At the top is a little upturned silver heart, and a pearl drop at the foot completes a well balanced and elegant overall design.
Suspended on two short lengths of chain from a central ring, the pendant shows on the back a partially rubbed but still recognizable maker’s mark for William J. Holmes together with a Birmingham hallmark for the year 1909.
Approximately 6 cm. long from the ring to the bottom of the drop, with the necklace chain measuring just under 46 cm.
