An Art Nouveau gold mounted pâte de verre and opal pendant necklace by René Lalique,


centred by a pale blue pâte de verre panel with floral motifs, the panel encircled and framed by a yellow gold stem that curls into the centre and bears very finely carved coloured water opal flowers, suspending a drop shaped opal mounted in gold and hung from a curb link chain mounted with two opal batons.

Contained in its original silk and velvet lined leather case, the exterior tooled with trailing mimosas.
Paris, circa 1900.
