Hand-painted with exacting care, this is a charming sterling silver vintage pendant in the motif of a cocker spaniel or similar dog.
Facing right, he or she is rendered in carious colors of enamel including black, tan, white and gray on a robin's egg blue and jaune background. It is signed, “JD” for the English maker that also uses the hallmark J de M.
With its original bale, it's an everyday pendant with an masterful inset miniature artwork.
