French Gold Brooch with Enamelled Mythical Scene

Item Description

Ornate French 18 ct. gold brooch featuring a rectangular enamelled image of a mythical woman, possibly Selene, goddess of the moon.

She has her eyes slightly downcast, and immediately above her somewhat wild looking hair sits a crescent moon.

Top quality detail to the enamelling which must have taken many hours to complete.

At each side of her is a foil backed blue enamelled flower encircled by swirling stylised stems and leaves.

The enamelled plaque is framed within a highly detailed outer design in gold showing superb craftsmanship and attention to detail.

On the reverse is a removable oval glazed fitment which reveals beneath it a locket compartment.

Late 1800’s, with a width of 5 cms., and probably from either Paris or Limoges, but we can find no signature or mark of any kind.
