The Art Nouveau movement focused heavily on the themes of nature, fantasy, and the female form. Exotic plants were incorporated with graceful feminine imagery - the seductive nymph of Pre-Raphaelite paintings, complete with long twisting hair.
This genuine Art Nouveau brooch is a wonderful representation of the expressive style of the period. It is crafted in silvered brass with a trace of gilding and has beautifully detailed repoussé figurative work. No maker's mark is visible and it has an old C-clasp.
The brooch measures 7/8 inch wide (at it's widest) and 7/8 inch long. The front of the brooch is in superb antique condition, while the back shows it's age.
A gorgeous genuine Art Nouveau brooch.
