French Victorian Plique-A-Jour Enamel Pendant '89481'
Kravit The Estate Department The Nation’s Largest Estate Buyers Since 1904
This is a very fine large, French Victorian Plique-A-Jour enamel pendant that features a circular disk design with an open frame pierced work filled in with polychromed enamel highlights resembling a stain glass window. This is truly an amazing piece of high end jewelry. It measures 33.80mm/1 1/4" wide! and is stamped on the bail with French hallmarks (Eagles Head) and Makers Marks for 18K yellow gold. As you can see from the photos the piece is in overall excellent condition. The enamel is in overall excellent condition (no chips or cracks) . Plique-A-Jour is a vitreous enameling technique where the enamel is applied in cells, similar to cloisonné, but with no backing in the final product, so light can shine through the transparent or translucent enamel. It is in effect a miniature version of stained-glass and is considered very challenging technically: high time consumption (up to 4 months per item) with a high failure rate.
