Here is a sweet n' petite little poured glass pendant that just arrived to me from France. It is in a flower design and has very colorful opaline poured glass beads with a poured ruby glass center set in a gold tone filigree backing and detailed suspension loop.
It measures 1 1/2" to include the bail, the pendant alone is about 1 1/8" x 1 1/8". Considering the age and rarity it is in good vintage condition, a tiny piece of the metal filigree frame on the reverse bottom is off. It is unnoticeable from the front or when worn and it is so small I didn't even see it at first. Also, it could use a light cleaning if desired.
Vintage opaline glass looks so different than what is made now. It has so much more fire to it. This glass has a lot of opal pink in it, whereas the newer opaline is pretty, yes, but just so white!
French in origin, I can not ascertain the maker. Almost an antique, I would date it to 1920s.
