André Fernand Thesmar Plique-à-Jour Enamel and Gold "Petite Coupe Sur Talon" Bowl
This small bowl, or "Petite Coupe Sur Talon," by André Fernand Thesmar is detailed in floral enamelwork and glimmering yellow gold. The delicate flower motifs of mountain blue violets that adorn this small bowl appear to float due to the expert use of plique-à-jour enameling, with light shining through it like stained glass. Thesmar's ability to create such an exceptional piece in gold and enamel shows a combination of artistry and technical genius that is very rare to come by.
