Art Deco Buddha brooch in lapis and sterling with marcasites, marked Made in France. Beautifully detailed, this little buddha sits in repose, framed by an elaborate, open-worked marcasite-studded throne or bower. The craftsmanship here is very fine, from the crownlike top to the rounded bottom (see photos). Marked Made in France, and tested as sterling silver.

The natural lapis stone shows variations with gold and pale blue ribbons and surface fissures. The multitude of marcasites are among the tiniest used in jewelry making, and, indeed, a few are missing, but I promise, you won’t notice them as they are about the size of a pin prick. The trombone clasp is secure.

Measures 2-3/16” by 1-3/16” with age-commensurate wear.
