Art Nouveau Silver Repousse Irises Pill Box Locket Pendant

$ 750.00

My Grandmother grew Irises like this one on her farm in Virginia. Big, frilly heirloom Irises that scented the air with a thick heady perfume in early summer. She had a row of them the length of the back of the house and 4 feet wide and they bloomed for weeks on end. Ensconced in my little room under the eaves, listening to the crickets and the frogs, I could smell that rich sweet musk coming in on the evening breeze. Now I have them in my garden, my Grandmothers Irises that were her Grandmother's before her and her Grandmother's before that. The Iris motif on this little pendant box is so beautifully reposséd and exquisitely detailed, I can almost smell them. Without a doubt it's an heirloom, too.

This fantastic Art Nouveau pendant box locket was probably made originally to hold powder or rouge, but you can use it to hold any small treasure you like. Most likely French in origin, I bought it in London, and though it is unmarked it tests as 800 silver. It measures 48.2 mm from top to bottom on the face and 41.3 mm wide, it is 20.1 mm from front to back and it weighs 9.1 grams. It has a beautiful lightly gilded interior.
