An 1898 Lalique pendant designed for actress Sarah Bernhardt. It depicts Miss Bernhardt as Mélissande in La Princesse Lointaine. I love this piece, and to think my Mom and aunts called me Sarah Bernhardt when I was a little girl.
René Lalique dragonfly pendant centred with an aquamarine in a framework of four dragonflies with plique-a-jour enamel wings (to enable light to shine through) embellished with diamonds. Pendant attached to a green enamel baton-link chain.
