Antique Art Nouveau German Silver Enamel Pansy Flower Charm Engraved Detail
Antique Art Nouveau German Silver Enamel Pansy Flower Charm Engraved Detail. This is an antique c. 1900 enameled charm depicting a lovely pansy bloom encircled by green foliage. The single bloom represents remembrance, or thinking of someone. The word “pansy” is derived from the French word “pens é e, ” which means thought. The flower has become a symbol of remembrance for loved ones. The enamel and silver are in great condition with no damage, just some light surface wear. The tri-color enameled pansy is striking in dark purple, violet, and yellow. The colors are still vibrant despite the age. The engraved detail is exquisite, with chisel and pin punch-style engraving. Pin punch engraving (the tiny punched dots dancing around the foliage) is unusual to find on charms like this. It takes great skill to achieve uniformity. The charm measures 3/4 and is stamped with import marks to the suspension loop. The weight is 3.3 grams. It is made of at least. 800 grade silver, and is German or Austrian in origin.
