A charming and very pretty silver necklace that was made circa 1900-1910. It is composed of fourteen hair bells that have been enamelled in the Plique a Jour technique. Plique-à-jour (French for “letting in daylight”) is a vitreous enamelling 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. it is a highly skilled technique and this necklace is an excellent example of the craft. The chain is 9ct gold.
