Jugendstil Silver-Gilt and Plique-à-Jour Brooch*
German Art Nouveau, or Jugendstil, brooch almost certainly from one of the Pforzheim makers, dating from around 1900.
Crafted in silver that has then been gilded and featuring a pair of lobed leaves spreading from the centre, above three rather lovely baroque pearls fixed in position below.
Cleverly contoured to give a noticeable three-dimensional look and with the areas in between the gold leaf veins plique-à-jour enamelled in a shade of light greeny-blue.
With its elegant, sweeping lines, the whole effect is so very Art Nouveau.
No maker’s mark, just the usual Deposé being impressed on the back, and with a width of just a fraction below 4.5 cms.
