Inspired by the grace of a swan, this large heart-shaped pendant creates a gorgeous Art Nouveau frame surrounding the plique-a-jour water and a sea of emerald green lily pads that radiate from an enamel white water lily in bloom. The single flower rests on a stylized silver pad and the scene is finally punctuated by a bezel-set green glass cabochon. This antique treasure, a rich play of color and design, appears as a tiny stained glass window where the Art Nouveau style intersects the Arts & Crafts era. It is beautiful to the extreme. The 26" chain fastened by a spring ring is likely original. Pendant size with bale: 2 1/2" L x 1 3/8" W. Produced in Germany or Austria, and probably purchased in the country of origin. Very good antique condition: Note a trace of missing white enamel. Marked: 900.
