Art Deco era intaglio glass pendant featuring a sensuous nude fairy swinging on a flower swag. The nude maiden is demure with her head down and has a huge expanse of dramatic wings creating a geometric contrast to the softness of her body and the floral bower from which she swings. This is a high quality reverse carved etching on crystal glass. Very much in the style of the work that Josef Hoffmann did on his perfume bottles. The etching is expertly done and extremely detailed. The glass is bezel set in a fob type setting with gold finish. It is quite large and has some weight to it weighing approximately 15 grams and measuring 2 1/2" in length overall. The glass measures 1 1/2" by 1". This pendant is superb, you will not be disappointed. Ready to hang on a chain or cord. An Excellent piece of Deco art glass from Europe.
