Offered is a lovely Heart shaped Art Nouveau Repousse Sterling Brooch by the Unger Brothers. The design depicts an Art Nouveau woman with flowing hair imposed over a background of water and a flowering lily pad. Hallmarked: “Sterling” “Unger Bros.” Measurements: 1 3/8” in length and 1 1/4” wide. The hallmark on the back says, Sterling 925 fine. The Unger Brothers emigrated to the U.S. from Germany in 1870 and were among the early designers and makers of Art Nouveau jewelry in the U.S.
Condition: very good antique. The pin safety catch works well. It is possible that this closure is a newer one. Unger typically used a c clasp on brooches.
I currently only ship within the United States.
