A vintage Russian Finift pendant on chain and matched earrings on wires, this set has enamel hand painted florals in shades of peach with accents. They are so delicately done, and when you look closely you can see that the minor details are a little different on each. The florals may be transfers with hand painted details and accents. Every piece is so well done, they are finished in speckled blue enamel on the backs that are concave. The settings are also so exquisite with so much detail. Even the backs have rope borders and the enameled inset plaques which have a curved surface with looped metal ropes that are holding them in place with open work filigree that has applied metal balls. The metal appears to be a white metal that is not silver, but there are no finish problems or ver de gris. The pendant has an elongated closed bail that will accept most chains and the pendant is an inch long without the bail and it is just shy of 1 ½” long and ½” wide. The chain is 16” long with a spring ring closure and it has a spring ring closure which works well and can be substituted for another. The earrings have the same motif and are on wires with a hook back and are identical to the pendant. All of these pieces of Russian Finift enamel jewelry are in excellent condition. So pretty and delicate in appearance, they are sturdy pieces from about the 1930’s to 1980’s. Excellent additions to any jewelry collection, they are collectible pieces of a lost Art in jewelry that will be a welcome addition to any jewelry collection, are very wearable and just the right accent pieces for any outfit.
