This is a so called Schaumgold enameled pendant from the Biedermeier period.
As the "Biedermeier" refers to the time period between the Congress of Vienna in 1814 and the revolution of 1848 in Austria. France called this period "Restoration".
A thin Goldblech is the basic material for most factory-made trinkets (shaped by pressing). Biedermeier jewelry often consists of Schaumgold.
I think this pendant is also made in this period. Beautiful turkoois enamel and has a little pampel. It is 7 cm long and as you can see on the third photo fits very good with my gold little earrings with turkoois.
I wonder if somebody can tell me how the decoration was made in the enamel?
