This massive brooch was crafted in Limoges, a town in France well-known for having made superior quality china over the centuries. This heavy pin can boast its association with a company which began manufacturing porcelain items what would become part of the most prestigious collections of items bearing the guarantee that it was "made and decorated in Limoges." The French town has honored the works of the Limoges artists by hosting the National Museum.
The porcelain pin we are presenting here is associated with this long-standing tradition. It is a pin steeped in history.
It is set in an elaborate 18K solid gold frame and represents a colorful pastoral setting, typical of the 18th century art scene.
The reverse shows a perfectly working push/pull (trombone) closure, and a large bail which can receive either a chain or a simple black cord. The Limoges porcelain plaque is in perfect condition, showing no cracks nor chips. In fact, the entire brooch is in excellent condition.
Whether you choose to wear it as a pin, or as a necklace with a heavy chain or a simple black cord, this elegant pin will be making a statement of good taste.
