A Belle Epoque Miniature Pendant

Description

A Belle Epoque navette-shape miniature pendant, set to the centre with a grisaille miniature depicting Venus and Eros, pressumed by Paillet, set under domed crystal surrounded by a rose-cut diamond-set frame and yellow gold back, terminating to three pearl and diamond-set drops, all suspended by a fine platinum and seed pearl-set chain, bearing Inventory number 4514, French hallmarks for gold and platinum and indistinct maker’s mark, circa 1900, the pendant measuring approximately 6.3 x 2.2cm, the chain is measuring approximately 40cm long, gross weight 7.8 grams.
Fernand Paillet (1850-1918) was a painter of miniatures for the Paris jeweller Boucheron.

This gorgeous Belle Epoque pendant necklace, typical of the French jeweller Boucheron, was made around 1900. The navette-shaped pendant features a delicate miniature painting of Venus and Eros, painted white against a pale blue background “en grisaille”. The frame is set throughout with tiny glittering rose-cut diamonds, and the chain suspending the pendant is set with lustrous pearls. This is a detailed, romantic, and wonderful piece: a true example of fine Belle Epoque craftsmanship.
