Imperial Russian Plique-a-Jour Watch Fob
This example of rare plique-a-jour (windowpane,)gold-framed enamel was presented in 1914 to the admiral of a Russian battleship. (I have a picture of the ship inscribed by officers of the crew.) The fob is inscribed with a good-luck wish and the date of 1914 and measures about 1-1/2 inches by 3/4 inch overall. For luck the remains of the the fob's blue silk ribbon has been retained.)
