This striking Art Nouveau Silver portrait pendant is truly one of a kind!
A repousse portrait of a woman gazing towards the sky and surrounded by swirling foliage perfectly captures the aesthetics of the Art Nouveau era.
On the reverse of the Silver disc there is evidence of the handiwork of the jeweller who created this magnificent piece, a nice touch making this antique pendant a wonderful collector's piece.
A pretty iridescent Pearl drop dangles freely from the base of the pendant adding an extra touch of femininity and a contrast to the beautiful light tarnish of the Silver.
