For sale here is a RARE and quite large vintage 1980s (or thereabouts) entirely handmade one of a kind copper enamel Fish pendant on a beaded cord necklace by American artist/enamelist Elizabeth Dasch of Oregon. The copper enamel fish pendant is decorated in the sgraffito technique where the artist etched through the red enamel to reveal the darker enamel underneath to create a dimensional texture and add detail to the pendant. The pendant is strung on a fabric cord with mostly 'sea' stone beads including baltic amber and red coral, also with wood beads and circular brass spacers. An entrancing and one of a kind creation!
Elizabeth Hoffman Dasch (1912-2009) was born in Portland Oregon. She attended Smith College in the 1930s where she met and became life-long friends with the famed chef Julia Child who became the godmother of her daughter. In the 1950s she went back to school to complete her college degree in art and education at Portland State University, after which she became a working artist. She and her husband Fred moved to Gig Harbor Washington in 1963, and she continued to hone her skills as an enamelist producing both enamel artwork and jewelry. She sold her artwork and jewelry in galleries in Oregon and Arizona. She died in 2009.
The pendant measures 3-3/4" long by 2-1/8" wide, and hangs on an approximately 35" cord that can be worn at various lengths depending on where you tie it, and the necklace overall weighs 74.5 grams total. Excellent vintage condition with just fine light wear as shown - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
