This genuine Art Nouveau Silver sliding mirror pendant is a real statement piece, measuring 6 cm from top to bottom (excluding the bale)!!! It features a gorgeous, rather Scottish scene of wild thistle in a typical Art Nouveau raised repousse design.
Full of antique charm, this stylish pendant is beautifully crafted and has clearly been well looked after. The patina on the Silver brings out the delicate details, and although it's a large accessory it really has a feeling of luxury and romance about it.
The pendant slides open to reveal a perfectly preserved antique mirror on one side whilst the other is free.
What you'd like to keep there is up to you, but many choose to keep a treasured photograph or note from a loved one close to their hearts.
The mirror pendant tests as high purity 900 Silver or higher, and looks fabulous worn on a chunky Silver chain.

This beautiful Art Nouveau Silver sliding mirror pendant is in gorgeous condition for its age! Circa 1890, the three-dimensional thistle design is full of life. The Silver has a little wear commensurate with age, but as can see all the fine details in the leaves and flowers, and the subtle aged patina gives a little additional contrast and drama to the piece. The large bale is very strong and would be suitable for daily wear. The sliding mechanism works perfectly, and the pendant stays closed whilst worn. One side features the original mirror which is absolutely pristine, and the other is plain with a Silver frame and a later perspex "window" to keep your photographs secure.
