A 4 ¼” wide by 3″ deep pewter necklace of intricate Rococo scrollwork with an enamelled black heart at its centre and a red Swarovski crystal on either side. On a split trace chain, 16 ½” (42cm) long overall plus a 35mm extender. ‘My Love of Soubise’ – a feature taken from the spectacular Rococo interior of the salon de la Hotel de Soubise in Paris, grand residence of the prince of Soubise, remodelled around 1735, when it is thought a young sculptor in the employ of architect Germain Boffrand furtively inserted his own romantic detail after having had an illicit affaire de coeur there with the prince’s wife, the Princess of Soubise, Anne Marie Louise, who tragically died in childbirth the following year.
