This charming enamel and sterling silver Art Nouveau pendant was crafted by the renowned silversmith and enameller, James Fenton, in 1908. It consists of the main pendant, which has a circular silver wire held by four silver straps to the decorative central component. These straps have small dots of turquoise blue enamel. The main circle has a wide rim of turquoise blue and green enamel in a ray pattern. In the very centre is a curved, probably mother of pearl, section surrounded with a band of silver. From the bottom hang two small silver and enamel pendants, one with turquoise and one with green enamel, and a central pearl segment. On the back the silver is marked for the maker and Birmingham, sterling silver, 1908. The overall condition is good for age but there is some slight unevenness and tiny loss of the enamel on the two coloured drops and the enamel main section has some fine radiating query cracks and a small amount of fine spotting. These problems are only apparent on close inspection. This would be a lovely item to wear or to add to a collection of stylish Art Nouveau jewellery. Main diameter 1.1 ins (2.2cm). Weight 8 grams. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $32.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
