Arts & Crafts Silver Enamel Pendant by Murrle Bennett & Co.

This stunning pendant was made by the firm of Murrle, Bennett and Company, an Anglo-German firm started by Ernst Murrle and J.B. Bennett, which produced pieces for retail by the store 'Liberty and Co.', the famous London Arts and Crafts dealers. The company was in existence from 1886-1914, this pendant was made in 1910. They specialized in high quality affordable silver and gold jewelry. They produced pieces predominately in the Arts and Crafts style, as their designs were often characterized by abstract motifs typical of this movement, often comprised of Celtic inspired interlacing elements, stylized foliate forms, pierced geometric shapes, luminous enamels and precious or semi-precious stones. After World War I, the company was renamed White Redgrove & Whyte. Murrle, Bennett and Company jewelry is now highly sought-after and widely collected.

This fabulous antique Arts and Crafts silver enamel pendant was handcrafted in England. It features a Tudor Rose motif of orange enamel overtop a green background with a blue enamel drop set on a hammered silver background. The chain measures 18 inches in length with the pendant measuring 49 x 24 mm. The pendant is marked “850” indicating its silver fineness, while the chain is marked, “925”, for sterling silver. The Murrle, Bennett and Company hallmark, the letters “MB” with a “C” around the initials, can be found on the back of the pendant. This necklace weighs 7.5 grams.

This is the kind of jewelry that I personally love to wear. The clean lines, the smooth and luminous enamel, the weighty feel and fantastic details, all speak to my soul.
