Silver gilt filigree mounted rock crystal flask pendant. Spanish, 17th cent

A rare rock crystal flask pendant with silver gilt filigree mounts.

Spanish, early 17th century.

Measures 6.2cm high excluding the suspension chains.

Internally retains traces of original gilding and a fragmentary depiction of the Nativity in verre églomisé.

Verre églomisé is a French term referring to the process of applying both a design and gilding onto the rear face of glass to produce a mirror finish. The name is derived from the 18th-century French decorator and art-dealer Jean-Baptiste Glomy (1711–1786), who was responsible for its revival.
Glomy's technique was a relatively simple one of applying decorative designs in a combination of plain colour and gilding, usually to glass picture frames. However, over time it has come to be used to describe nearly any process involving back-painted and gilded glass, however elaborate.
