English Georgian Pearl, Porcelain Enamel and Gold Pendant Necklace

An English Georgian 18 karat gold and porcelain enamel Lover's Eye pendant necklace with half pearls. The pendant necklace has 47 half pearls approximately 3 mm. in size surrounding the pendant. This unique pendant is composed of symbolic elements of memorial jewelry. In this piece, the pearl frame signifies tears, white -- a traditional memorial color -- is used heavily, and a bucolic garden -- yet another symbol of memorials -- is featured prominently. The flaming heart and the lover's eye denote a passionate love that had ended. As Ginny Dawes notes, "In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries there was a fashion in love jewelry, for Memento Mori or 'vanitas' pieces which meant, literally, 'remember you must die'," and to memorialize the love that has departed.

"The name Masriera is not only a synonym for artistic jewellery, but also much more: Catalan modernist jewelry, a world focussed on the symbolic trends of Art Nouveau. The name Masriera is completely inseparable from the artistic and cultural life in Barcelona in the last decades of the 19th century until the first decades of the 20th century." After being introduced to the work of René Lalique and the 1900 International Paris Exhibition, Masriera's jewels focused on the floral, serpentine elements and feminine sensuality, but the true iconographic revolution came from the magical fusion of the Art Nouveau, the iconic fusion between woman and nature, spawning the popular fairies, nymphs, naiads and insect-women.

René Lalique Art Nouveau Enamel and Gold Boxed "Automne" Pendant

A French Art Nouveau enamel, translucent enamel and gold "Automne" pendant by René Lalique. This piece is one of many allegorical jewels that Lalique created to celebrate the beauties of the natural world. In this pendant, autumn is personified in enamel and gold. The pale face is carved in bas relief into the enamel, and carved leaves and enameled berries delicately fall down the arabesquing frame. Lalique was only one of many artists at the time who was fascinated by the transience of nature. The solemn countenance of the face and curling edges of the gold leaves in this pendant suggest an anticipation of the decay and cold that are soon to come with the changing of the seasons. The pendant has the original fitted leather box embossed with a design of falling leaves, the silk lining of the case is signed with gilt mark R. Lalique/20 Rue Thérèse/Paris. Pictured in Antique and 20th Century Jewellery, by Vivienne Becker, NAG Press London, 1980, page 213, Plate 17.14. A similar "Automne" is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
