Unusual French World War I pendant circa 1915 showing a beautifully detailed fighter plane, probably a Morane-Saulnier type N with its distinctive wire wing bracing, attacking a German plane to the left of the pendant, amongst clouds. The translucent blue enamel background is done in a difficult technique known as plique-a-jour. As enamel is in powder form until fired it is necessary to back a piece with mica, which is heat-resistant, or copper which is subsequently removed with acid after firing.

There is a French control mark on the ring which even with a high-power loupe I cannot make out; but it has the appearance of platinum which I would expect given its strength for detail and the high quality of the work.  

The pendant is approximately one inch in diameter 

established 1912 in London
