Overview:

Finely detailed vintage Art Deco plique a jour pendant (circa 1920s to 1930s), crafted in 18 karat yellow gold.

A kaleidoscope of colors adorn the pendant in shades of red, blue and green.

Plique a jour is a French term for 'letting in daylight'. The enameling technique is applied in small cells or tiny areas and is similar to cloisonné. The pendant does not have a backing, allowing light to shine through the translucent enamel. In natural light the colors are vivid, mimicking a beautiful stained-glass effect.

The pendant is in very good condition. It has not been cleaned in order to preserve the patina and collector value.
