Collection of 18k gold and gemstone Art Nouveau pendants attributed to Felix Rasumny (b. 20 April 1869, Sebastopol—d. 1940, Paris).
Rasumny was a Russian engraver, born in Sebastopol, but immigrated to Paris. He was trained at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs under such masters as Aime Millet, Camille Gauthier and Paulin Tasset.
He exhibited his works at the Salon of the Societe des Artistes Francais in 1891 and at the Exposition Universelle in 1900 (awarded with a silver medal). He became a member of the Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts in 1911 and was titled as Chevalier of the Legion of Honor in 1933.
