Exquisitely intricate Art Nouveau scarf or sash pin in gilt brass. Depicting one of the most beloved of Victorian motifs, a basket of flowers. Delicate flower petals, trailing, gadrooned wire stems, and tiny leaves spill out of a scrolling basket. The brooch measures 2 1/2" in diameter and is in excellent condition with no damage. The pin back appears to be a replacement, this was obviously a very cherished piece, the newer pin back features a safety catch for security. Gorgeous Art Nouveau example, circa 1880-1910.
