An Important Holbeinesque Garnet And Enamel Pendant

Description

An important Holbeinesque garnet and enamel pendant, the large oval carbuncle garnet surrounded by a border of round faceted chrysolite and a further border of eight larger round faceted chrysolites in between a green, white and red enamel Holbeinesque design, to a pendant drop of pear shape faceted chrysolite within an enamel border and two smaller round faceted chrysolite, suspended from a detachable pendant loop of graduated chrysolite to an enamel border, all set to an engraved closed back gold mount, circa 1860, measuring approximately 8.7 x 4.7cm, gross weight 47.33 grams.

A magnificent nineteenth century Holbeinesque pendant. Holbeinesque is a term used to describe Victorian jewellery that was made in the style of the Renaissance, particularly inspired by the Northern Renaissance and the paintings of Hans Holbein. Holbein produced sketches of the jewellery worn at the Tudor court, and the sketches were used as reference points by Victorian jewellery designers and craftsmen. This pendant features a wonderful central oval garnet. The garnet is surrounded by a frame of sparkling chrysolite and a further frame of yellow gold, enamel, and chrysolite. The red enamel is applied in a Greek key pattern, while the green enamel surrounds the mounted chrysolite stones. This piece features exquisite and wonderful detail.
