Chantilly Trinity Necklace
The three-sided spinning pendant featured in this necklace is a recreation of a Victorian gentleman’s watch fob. It contains three special vintage glass ovals manufactured in mid-century Germany and Japan.
One of the German ovals is a glass picture stone depicting a courting couple in Limoges style. This style originated in the 18th-century and is commonly associated with the production of ornately painted china produced in Limoges, France.
The Japanese oval is Cherry Brand glass and was made by rice farmers moonlighting as glass artisans during the American occupation of Japan after WWII.
