Silver and Plique-à-Jour Angel Pendant
Stunning octagonal silver pendant with the profile portrait of an angel, hands clasped together, praying against a backdrop of plique-à-jour enamelled stained glass windows.
The outer edge of the pendant is bevelled and a very fine fretwork design is repeated all round the inside edge.
Raised slightly in the centre is the plaque containing the image, with the maker’s initials LD inscribed on to the angel’s wings.
As yet we can find no record of the maker but feel sure that the origin is either France or Germany, circa 1900 or perhaps a little before.
This is a large pendant, with a width of 6 cm and hangs from a silver Arts & Crafts chain approximately 62 cm long.
