Enamel, natural pearl and gold vine pendant and chain. English. This is a wonderful example of a piece of Art Nouveau jewelry combining beautiful pastel toned enamel with peg set natural pearls on intricate carved yellow gold leaves. Suspended from a finely linked yellow gold chain.
This gorgeous pin and/or pendant, circa 1900, shimmers with a sizable freshwater pearl (13.86 by 11.5 millimeters) closely guarded left and right by a pair of vigilant griffins (or dragons), and crowned - with a pearly crown! A superb and dramatic work of Art Nouveau. 1-inch both ways.

4K gold Art Nouveau orchid pin, circa 1915, is an exquisite example of the period, with its detailed three-dimensional ruffled and enamel orchid, one of the iconic images of the Art Nouveau style. The delicate true-to-life colors blend from mauve to rust, like the flower itself, here with a seed pearl pistil and spring green leaves, all in miniature, 1" wide x 7/8" high, made by the famed Newark jeweler Henry Blank, Whiteside & Blank.
