I bought this pendant a few months ago. I just had to have it.
Its made by Ovide Yencesse (1869-1947), a French medaillist and sculptor.
Its about 3cm wide and 2cm high. Its a bit dirty on the back but Iwill have to leave it like that, I don't want to ruin the nice patina!
There exists also a bronze plaquette and a lot of medals with the same image.
The style is really impressionistic. Its very low relief and blurred. So when I bouht it I almost thought it was worn. But thats just the way it was made. It looks stunning on a black dress.
I absolutely love it and I'm never going to part with it!
