Insect Pin Tray*

Item Description

Little brass pin or trinket tray with a beautifully detailed casting of two large beetles and two smaller bugs on a stylised water-lily leaf.

Little droplets of water can be seen on the surface of the leaf which also has a decorative scalloped edge.

Circa 1910, with no maker’s marks but almost certainly made in France.  Plants and insects were known to be captivating subjects for the French Art Nouveau artists of the times. 

Approximately 11.5 cm long by just under 10 cm wide at its widest point.

Ref: 12490
