Bow, pendant, stem, bezel and back lid are decorated with multi-coloured Champlevé enamel flowers against an opaque turquoise-coloured ground. The exquisitely painted enamel medallion on the back is surrounded by a translucent red and golden frame and shows a delicate polychrome composition of spring flowers on opaque green enamel ground. The bridge movement is of more recent date and was subsequently installed in the beautiful case. The reuse reveals on the one hand the appreciation of the artistic enamel work and on the other hand the high status of the great Le Roy family in Paris.
