This is a genuine Art Nouveau gold bib necklace crafted in repoussé 18K solid gold. It features 4 festooned floral motifs linked together, separated by a 18mm long floral drop, and suspended on lovely cable chain. It was the one of the featured items in an exhibit, held in a French gallery, on women's clothing and accessories during the Napoléon III, the Victorian and the Edwardian eras.

Each of the four festoon shields are composed of 3 flowers and leaves, crafted in repoussé gold. The foliate and floral motif is replicated on the 3 drops that separate and unite the festoon shields, and dangle gently from their base. The back of the necklace is plain and solid gold.

Delicate yet sturdy, with a great attention to details and a delicate yet sturdy appearance, this necklace is the epitome of femininity,

The necklace closes with a spring coil. There are no repairs or damage to the necklace. This gorgeous necklace is in wonderful condition and it is all original.
