Antique Art Nouveau pendant necklace on a chain by George N. Steere. This striking pendant features stylized Egyptian symbols combined in Steere's unique vision. The dramatic upper part includes a rectangular purple glass stone, double snakes with green eyes, flared bird wings, and a blue lotus flower. The lower portion is richly layered and detailed. Winglike elements cover the outer edges of the large purple stone.

The pendant measures 3" long by 1-1/4" at widest. The old, 27" chain may be original. It matches perfectly and has a nice clasp. There are no chips, but there's a flea bite on the lower stone that you can see in the photos and a bit of facet wear. The back of the pendant shows that the gilding of the brass has worn through in a few areas and there is some peppering.

The piece is unmarked but I am confident in my attribution. I've been studying Steere's work for years, and if you would like to see more, I've got a board on Pinterest.
