Here's an Art Nouveau gilt brass sash pin with a strong presence. A large faceted amethyst glass stone fills the center; on either wide, applied flower and leaf forms arch seductively (as if they are beckoning) and show a bit of characteristic whiplash movement. The metal surface itself has an intriguing textured design. There are three domed bumps and two curled edges at the top. The brooch is weighty at 36.4g and it measures 3" by 2-1/4". The condition is very good, with minor burnishing at one side of the gem and age appropriate wear to the stone.
