Gold necklace and armlet. This gold filigree necklace and matching armlet are decorated with oval gold plaques enamelled 'en camaieu' with classical profiles and set with pearls and filigree ornamentation. This set is a very rare survival from the French Empire period, such fragile dress accessories rarely remaining intact. The armlets must have been worn over the material of the dress sleeve on the upper arm to prevent them from slipping down. The tubular filigree links uniting the plaques and bows of woven gold wire resemble those in a design published by Mesangere in about 1805.
