Smith & Ewen Silver and Enamel Pendant
Art Nouveau silver and enamel pendant with a mother of pearl plaque in the centre.
With flowing overlapping lines and a whiplash detail, finished with a little enamelled drop.
The strong green colour of the enamel shades to a very pale, almost pearlised lavender at the top which gives a very effective and subtle contrast to the colours.
Showing a Birmingham hallmark for the year 1909 and also the maker’s mark of Smith & Ewen of Frederick Street, Birmingham who made some delightful Art Nouveau jewellery between 1894 and 1911.
The pendant, including its bale and drop, is approximately 5 cm long and the silver necklace chain which has a barrel type clasp measures 39 cm.
