Antique Art Nouveau peacock brooch in a buckle design, sterling silver. A huge peacock with fancy comb and abundant feathers dominates this large brooch, with branches, winding flowers, and long stems providing the graceful backdrop. The brooch is curvy, appearing to undulate, emphasizing the gorgeous textures, contrasts, and artful rendering of the engravings. An upside down flower looks like a butterfly. With its open worked center and "prong", it imitates a beautiful buckle. The c-clasp is a bit wobbly until it inserts in fabric. Measuring about 3" by 2", it makes a great statement piece. The condition is very fine with no dings, dents, or scratches.
