    Fabulous miniature enameled pendant in the manner of Erte.
    This Art Deco image was created in the atelier of a Russian miniaturist using the same techniques as are used in the well-known hand-painted miniature boxes and babushkas. The pendant mounted on Sterling Silver is suspended from a strand of natural green Moonstone separated by Jet rondels. The finishing touch is a black druzy clasp that matches Madamoiselle’s dress.
