Here is a lovely vintage pin from the Art Nouveau era. It is slightly off-round in shape and features 3 mermaids. Two of the figures appear to be kissing and caressing. The decorative work is very high relief. The piece has a secure roll-over safety clasp as well as a substantial hook for wearing on a chain as a pendant.
The brooch measures approximately 2-1/4"H x 2-1/8"W, and weighs 22.7 grams or 0.80 ounces. We have not tested or polished this piece. Although unmarked, we do believe at least the front of the brooch is sterling silver. It is in very good condition.
