Art Nouveau Gold and Enamel Dragonfly Brooch*
Delightful little circular 15 ct gold brooch set with an enamelled dragonfly apparently flying across the surface of a pond.
The colours are quite individual, with a subtelty that makes a real change from the more usually seen vibrant enamelling.
The outline of the insect’s wings, body sections and eyes are all picked out in extremely fine gold detail and the craftsmanship is quite superb.
Unmarked but testing as 15 ct. and measuring a fraction below 2.5 cm in diameter.
