Antique Art Nouveau French Silver Brooch Pin

     It happens every time, I’m on my way to Europe and I have a little chat with myself about what I should buy, garnet rings, diamond bands, gold earrings, I go down the list, and I always tell myself ’no brooches!!’.  Well, here’s the problem, some of them are just SO beautiful, how is a girl supposed to resist?  I ask you.  I mean, just look at that face, that gorgeous Art Nouveau frame, that amazing flowing hair.  Well, what can I say?  Rules were meant to be broken!

     I found this stunning girl in the markets of Paris.  I would have thought that she would be signed, but upon careful examination I found French assay and maker's marks, but no signature.  Surely such artistry is the work of a master craftsman, though.  The brooch is crafted in 900 silver and measures just a hair over 1 1/4 inches in either direction.  It has a C clasp and extended pin stem and dates to about 1890-1900, the very epitome of Art Nouveau.  The brooch weighs 9 grams. 

     In my humble opinion, brooches are highly underrated, they are the perfect accessory for any outfit, on the strap of a one-shouldered dress, used to hold a wonderful scarf in the perfect position, on a sweater, a blazer, even a hat.  I can’t tell you how many time I’ve been delighted to find a beautiful brooch in my jewelry box, you should try having one in yours, too!

     I offer layaway on most items purchased for full retail price. In general my layaway terms are 1/3 down and 1/3 in 30 days and the last 1/3 in 60 days.  I am flexible so if you are interested please ask me and we can work out a payment plan that suits you.  Items ship when payment is complete and items purchased or payments made on layaway are eligible for store credit only.

     I always want you to be happy with every aspect of your purchase from my shop.  If you are not completely satisfied for any reason simply let me know and we'll work together to get the item returned for a full refund.  I guarantee that my pictures and descriptions are as accurate as possible.  My goal is to exceed your best expectations!
