It always amazes me when a plique a jour piece of jewelry survives without damage!
I was incredibly lucky to acquire this plique enamel bracelet in
formed as stylized butterflies. Set in sterling, it has large central chrysoprase cabachons and smaller onyx cabs, red enamel and marcasites. The butterfly wings are plique a jour enamel in green, white and purple.
Hallmarks include a cat (Egypt)and a capital letter E dating it to 1929.
I have another lovely plique bracelet which is also Egyptian. Anyone have any information on Egyptian Deco jewelry?
