Silver & Plique A Jour Enamel Art Nouveau Jugendstil Pendant Necklace C 1900:
Height : 28 mm
Width : 30 mm / 1 ¼”
This Art Nouveau, heart-shaped Sterling silver pendant is set with paste diamante stones, with two ruby-coloured central ‘gems’. The outer ‘wing-like’ sides are made of open-work silver cells filled with plique a jour enamel which fades from blue to a salmon-pink at the bottom.
Marked on the back, ‘Sterling’, and offered in excellent condition, with no breaks or repairs. Sold with the chain, which is 14" and unmarked, but thought to be silver. I do not know if this is original to the piece.
Similar to German, Jugendstil jewellery made at Pforzheim at the turn of the last century, but possibly American or English? Made circa 1900.
A beautiful and original item of Art Nouveau jewellery which would look lovely worn, or would display well with any collection of contemporary jewellery by such as Levinger & Bissinger, Rodi & Wienenberger, Theodor Fahrner or Liberty & Co.
Will be carefully and lovingly packed. International buyers: If you require insurance against loss by the Post Office, (to the value of the item up to £500), this will cost an additional £2.50.
