Limoges Portrait Brooch by Lesrous*
Circular Limoges enamelled portrait of a young woman seen in profile, set in an 18 carat gold mount in the form of a bar brooch.
From the Art Nouveau era of the late 1800’s to early 1900’s, and vivdly enamelled in typically Limoges style.
An elegant design with the gold fashioned at the sides of the mount into an openwork design which tapers smoothly, giving the appearance of having been bound to the extending gold bar.
The brooch has a width of a fraction under 8 cm and the enamel portrait is a little over 2 cm in diameter.
Impressed with the French assay mark on the rim and signed on the back by the artist Lesrous, Limoges.
