This stunning, Art Deco silver and plique à jour enamel pendant is a Saint Christopher, worn to protect travellers. It is French and bears the crab hallmark for 800-900 quality silver.
The pendant measures 1 and 1/16” (2.7cms) across and weighs 9.1grams so is quite substantial.
The front carries a skilfully sculpted image of St. Christopher carrying the Christ Child across a river. The pendant is unsigned .
The detailing is in the modernist style. What is particularly lovely is the design behind the figures - reminiscent of a stained glass window. The turquoise green and pink enamel is transparent when held to the light. It is all in place.
The pendant has a ring at the top which bears the hallmark. There is a larger ring to hold a chain. The back is plain silver with the enamel backs.
This charming piece is in fine, vintage condition. It would be a perfect gift for a loved one who travels. It will arrive in a gift box.
