Limoges France 1950's Pendant
Limoges is a town 229 miles south west of Paris where huge deposits of kaolin were found during the late 18th century. Koaolin is a key mineral for the production of fine porcelain. This lovely pendant is likely to have been produced some time during the 1950's. It is in the shape of a fob watch combing fine colored crystals and faux pearls with a centrepiece of the head of a lady which would have been first transfer printed and then touched up with accents by hand. There is a bale to the back to attach a chain, or an alternative would be to put a pin through the bale and attach as a brooch. Condition is good. Overall dimension is substantial at 5.5cms across.
