Vintage Henryk Winograd Fine Silver Spanish Conquistador Portrait Pendant ~ c1960s

This is a superb fine silver vintage portrait pendant hand made by Henryk Winograd in the 1970s. The pendant depicts a Spanish Conquistador and horse ~ one also gets the impression of Don Quixote from this piece. Henryk Winograd a Russian immigrant (circa 1917 - 2008) came from a family of silversmiths and was a master of lost silver smithing techniques including Filigree, Niello and Cloisonée. He worked primarily in repoussé (from the French "re-pushing"), working from the back of the sheet of silver, then hammering and re-hammering the surface. He worked primarily in pure silver and hallmarks pieces with an oblong box inscribed "HW999".

This piece is a beautiful example of the skills of Henryk Winograd ~ it is three dimensional and full of exquisite detail. The beautiful movement of the horse; the sword, armour and cape of the rider are rendered with great skill. The pendant has an oval shape and has a large hanging ring. It is signed HW .999

Dimensions are : 1 7/8 inches in length (ex bale) by 1 1/2 inches in width; depth is approx 3/8 inch; weight is a very substantial 30.5 grams of almost pure silver. In excellent vintage condition with a little surface blemishing ~ expected in such soft silver and there is fine patina to the piece.

This is a very fine portrait pendant and a superb example of the work of Henryk Winograd ~ very collectable.
