This delicate Art Nouveau pendant is English and marked for 9 carat gold. It is ornamented with sapphire pastes. It comes with a 9 carat gold chain.
I believe that the fine gold chain is original to the piece, It measures 19 ¾” (50.5cms) long. It is marked ‘9ct’ for 9 carat on the ring clasp.
The pendant measures 1 and 1/16” (2.8cms) long, including the bail, by 5/8” (1.5cms) across the widest part. Together with the chain it weighs 1.9 grams.
The style is similar to the Jugendstil or Germanic version of Art Nouveau, The lines are more geometric but also characteristically curved. The open, airy effect is very pleasing to the eye. At the centre is a sapphire blue paste and two smaller ones finish the top and base. Near to the top is also a tiny gold ball. There is a ring and a substantial bail.
The reverse is neatly finished and there is a plaque inscribed ‘9Ct’ for nine carat gold.
This truly charming pendant necklace, in fine antique condition, will arrive in a gift box,
