This exceptional verre eglomise rock crystal panel depicts a maiden in classical dress playing with a hound. She sits on a plinth in a clearing with cypress trees in the background. The scene is backed with grayish mother-of-pearl that seems to create a sky of swirling clouds. The reverse of the pendant is simply finished with pale grayish-blue silk. The plaque is simply mounted in an 18K yellow gold frame with a bail at the top. Verre eglomise was most often used in mourning jewelry. The maiden seated on a broken column suggests the death of a woman early in life and the dog with a wagging tail suggests loyalty and the value of loving the departed. The unusually playful interaction of the dog and the maiden, the latter with a delicately painted smiling face, is a refreshing depiction. The pendant was found in France, but the absence of a hallmark suggests England as a more likely place of origin. Tested and guaranteed 18K gold.
