Description:
A rare pendant necklace by Wassily Kandinsky in 22 karat gold. The pendant which hangs from a neck ring is high karat gold with nine prong set full cut diamonds highlighting the griffin. The pendant is accentuated by small bead granulation and tracery work in the design of a strutting bird. Kandinsky designed jewelry in 1903-1904, but never did anything with the drawings. The drawings were found in his wife's archives in the 1960's and given to Max Pollinger a Munich goldsmith to produce. This piece is 2/20. Signed: Nach Entwurf von Wassily Kandinsky 2/20 750 900 MP (maker's mark).
