A lovely vintage 999 silver pendant signed with the mark of Henryk Winograd*.
The heart box like pendant has a wonderfully detailed sculptural scene of an Art Nouveau style woman with flowing hair.
The repousse is fabulous, the workmanship is clean with high relief and graceful lines.
The textured background is filled with lush lily pad flowers, buds and leaves.
Perfect oxidation brings out the fine detail and the swirling lines of her hair weave through and mix with the lush flowers and foliage.
The pendant measures 1&1/8" by 1.25" with a depth of .25", total weight is 9.5 grams.
Marked on the side with the WH999 hallmark.
Excellent condition, no damage or visible wear- there is a lot of reflection on the shiny surface in the photos which distorts the face a bit, it is much nicer in person.
A wonderful vintage hand crafted repousse pendant c1970s by a fabulous 20th century silversmith.
