Big! 2.1/8" high (with bale), 1.7/16" wide, 9.7 grams.
Un identified hallmark which looks like french "charançon", but not exactly.
Enamel is in cabochon shape for the drops and leaves.
As can be seen in pic#4, had damage, so, you know what?
I searched for maker, but no success!
French enamelist Comte du Suau de la Croix first used it in 19th century, but this is not his work...
The white tiny highlights place it in 1870/1880 era, rather than Art Nouveau.
I thought it was previously a hat pin, but when unscrew the cap bale, the male screwing part is on the pendant! So, it need a female screw pin part to be used as hat pin. Not usual at all :-)
Any help appreciated on it :-)
