Presented here is a very remarkable and rare 18 K solid Gold pendant, dating back to 1925 – 1930.
Its main rarity is that is signed by Paul Emile Brandt ( 1883-1952) and is one of the very rare Plique-à-jour medals still on the market made by Brandt who was a leading figure of the Art Moderne movement along with contemporaries such as Després and Templier. He is best remembered for his bold and innovative Art Nouveau and Art Deco designs and works signed by him are in extreme demand as a top notch artist and reach very high premiums and still soaring. He ceased his jewelry activity in 1936 so this is why this medal is estimated to be of the 1925-1930 period.
Specifications are as follows:
a) It has measurements of 35 x 25 mm (with bail ).
b) Its weight is a heavy 6.1 grams.
c) It is made using the “Plique-à-jour” technique : Plique-à-jour (French for "letting in daylight") is a vitreous enameling technique where the enamel is applied in cells, similar to cloisonné, but with no backing in the final product, so light can shine through the transparent or translucent enamel. This is an extremely difficult technique.
d) The pendant is high relief and made in France.
e) It is Polychrome, i.e. of many plique à jour colors as may be seen in the photos : blue, pink and turquoise - Even the bail is plique à jour enameled.
f) The chain in the picture is NOT included as a gift in the offer. The medal is sold alone.
g) Eagle French 18K Carat hallmark and maker's hallmark.
Pictures have been taken so that the beautiful Plique-à-jour effect is well seen.
This is an extremely rare item done with extreme care in all details. It is highly attractive and unusually well done. In an exceptional "as new" condition, it is definitely a unique heirloom.
