Marie-Antoinette Monogram Necklace
91.67 € tax excl.
A monogram, or number consists of the initial letter of a name, either doubled or followed by the second letter of the name, both interlaced in a single character with or without ornaments. It is used to sign, but is also found on furniture bronzes or any object belonging to the owner of the monogram.
Thus the number M A is at the heart of the textile decoration of the Queen's large bedroom, which she renewed in 1786: the Lyon embroiderer and painter Jean-François Bony surrounded it with his favourite flowers.
Les Néréides Paris has designed a floral and gilded pendant inspired by Marie-Antoinette; the Queen's monogram, as airy as an embroidery, is adorned with hand enamelled country flowers, a know-how inherited from high jewellery.
Dimensions: 45 cm x 1,5 cm x 2 cm
