French Art Nouveau Femme Locket by Louis Armand Rault
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
Beautifully representative of the flowing lines associated with the Art Nouveau aesthetic, this lovely sliding locket, crafted in rich 18K gold with a satiny finish by medallist Louis Armand Rault, features a fabulous femme in profile adorned with a diamond-dotted pansy and encircled by flowering vines twinkling here and there with tiny diamonds. The locket slides open to reveal a photo compartment and suspends from a 16-inch cable chain. Circa 1895-1910. Condition note: Some small dents on the rear are commensurate with the age of the piece.
