1920s Green Pansy Earrings - Original Plique-a-Jour
These very old, original Plique-a -jour earrings are amazing. I have dated them as 1920s made and having taken advice, they are probably very early 1920s or even later, due to the style of the screw back fittings.

The earrings are large lime green pansies with individual petals, dark purple/brown centers and tiny little felt (I think) stamens peeking out between the petals.

Due to the age of these earrings, there are some small hairline cracks to one petal of each earring. I have shown them in the last photo. They are the uppermost petal of each earring. They are not obvious when being worn.

These earrings belonged to my friend's mother who lived for a long time, before she moved to Canada, in British Guyana. So they may have been made there, or Canada. She died in the 1960s. She loved her costume jewelry and looked after it all exceptionally well. These are heirloom quality.

Size: approx. 1 1/4 inches.
Price: 60 euro

Plique a Jour, (French for "letting in daylight") is a vitreous enameling technique where the enamel is applied in cells, similar to cloisonné, but with no backing in the final product, so light can shine through the transparent or translucent enamel. It is in effect a miniature version of stained-glass and is considered very challenging technically.

Filigree Plique-a-jour ("Russian Plique-a-jour"): This is a building up process whereby a planned design is interpreted using gold or silver wires which are worked over a metal form (i.e. bowl). Wires are twisted or engraved, e.g. have additional micro-patterns. The wires are soldered together. Enamels are ground and applied to each "cell" created by the metal wirework. The piece is fired in a kiln. This process of placing and firing the enamels is repeated until all cells are completely filled. Usually, it takes up to 15-20 repeats.
