Jugendstil Gold and Opal Brooch
German Jugendstil high carat gold brooch with a shaped, almost oval outline and a stylised openwork design full of sinuous, swirling movement, set with a well coloured opal at an angle to one side.
Finished at the foot with a natural pearl drop to complete a well balanced and elegant overall look.
No marks, but testing as at least 15 ct. gold and almost certainly from one of the Pforzheim based jewellers.
The brooch is still housed in the original red and black velvet covered fitted box bearing the name of the retailer Eduard Foehr of Stuttgart.
Circa 1900 and with a width of 3 cms.
