A beautifully made sterling silver Art Nouveau pendant featuring a romantic maiden with flowing hair. This pendant is wonderfully weighty and smooth against the skin, it sits flat and yet has a textured interesting look.
This pendant shows the new freedom that was expressed in jewellers after the turn of the century in England as the often formal, structured and restrained designs of the Victorian era gradually gave way to a more casual, flowing and naif style with the subject matter and designs reflecting this style.
It gleams, is a nice shape and size to wear everyday, and the silver is smooth and wonderfully tactile.
An original Art Nouveau piece, it dates to circa 1910 from the United Kingdom.
It looks great on a short belcher chain or on a longer finer chain for a more casual look. I love this pendant. It looks great and feels great on too! A wonderful unique gift or just a really special piece of antique jewellery to treasure for yourself!
The pendant measures 2 cms long and 2 cms across at its widest point.
It is marked with a Sterling Silver stamp.
