French Enameled and Gilt-decorated "Papillons et Fleurons" Vase by Daum

A French enameled and gilt-decorated "Papillons et Fleurons" vase by Daum, circa 1893. The ground of the vase is gold, and is decorated with an enameled butterfly adorned by multicolored wings, and several bees humming around the vase. Two ornamental Croix de Lorraine can be seen on the upper and lower sections of the vase. The middle section of the vase is decorated with a frieze of grasshoppers. The top of the vase is gilded, and the background of the decoration was enriched by gold colored jasper. Daum was inspired by 12th-14th century enameled glass mosque lamps while designing this vase. This vase was created at the beginning of the Art Nouveau period, and it reflects the stylistic changes happening as the style was evolving. As art was adapting from the more traditional and ornamental styles of the 19th century, France was modernizing as a country. Daum embraced Lorraine's history, and incorporated the symbol of his home into this work featuring metamorphosis, change, and renaissance.

Petite Coupe Sur in Enamel and Gold by Thesmar

Petite coupe sur talon in enamel and 18 karat gold by André Fernand Thesmar (1843–1912). In original box. André Fernand Thesmar (1843-1912) was a French enameler. He is credited with bringing the style of soft-paste porcelain back into style, alongside sections with gold foil backings, in the 20th century. He also used the method of plique-à-jour, including works that were often inspired by Japanese and Chinese enameling. He showed his work at the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle. The floral motifs that adorn this petite coupe sur talon by André Thesmar appear to float due to the expert use of plique-à-jour, a type of enamel that has no backing so that light can shine through it like leaded 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. A similar coup sur talon is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Artist: Andre Fernand Thesmar

Circa: 1907
Dimensions: 2 3/4'' diameter x 7/8'' high

English Georgian Pearl, Porcelain Enamel and Gold Pendant Necklace

An English Georgian 18 karat gold and porcelain enamel Lover's Eye pendant necklace with half pearls. The pendant necklace has 47 half pearls approximately 3 mm. in size surrounding the pendant. This unique pendant is composed of symbolic elements of memorial jewelry. In this piece, the pearl frame signifies tears, white -- a traditional memorial color -- is used heavily, and a bucolic garden -- yet another symbol of memorials -- is featured prominently. The flaming heart and the lover's eye denote a passionate love that had ended. As Ginny Dawes notes, "In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries there was a fashion in love jewelry, for Memento Mori or 'vanitas' pieces which meant, literally, 'remember you must die'," and to memorialize the love that has departed. With fitted box.

English Georgian Amethyst Rivière Necklace

An English Georgian 9 karat gold and silver rivière necklace with 28 cushion-cut foil backed amethysts that graduate in size and are chain linked. The amethysts are foiled and closed backed. (Safety chain added later.) The rivière is a short (usually 14-16 inches) necklace simply composed of a line of faceted gemstones or pastes, often graduating in size, and individually set. When the style first developed, in the late 17th or early 18th century, the settings were closed-back. Later versions had open settings so that the effect was a continuous, shining stream around the neck. Some ornate examples have additional gems dangling from the main necklace. Provenance: The Nancy and Gilbert Levine Collection, at The Toledo Museum of Art. The Levine Collecion comprised the Museum of Arts and Sciences travelling exhibition "A Century of Jewelry & Gems: 1785-1885" in 1995.
