We are pleased to offer a wonderful vintage Art Nouveau brooch. This piece is 10K gold (tested) and features a high relief side view bust image of a woman. She holds a flower in her left hand which is raised to view. The flower has a gemstone center, which appears to be a garnet. There are vines and flowers along the edge above her right shoulder and above and beyond her head. She has an up-do hairstyle.
The brooch is artist signed: "F. LASSERRE", the famous French sculptor Firmin Pierre Lasserre, circa 1870-1943. The pin measures approximately 7/8" in diameter and weighs 4.6 grams or 0.16 ounces.
Lovely, artist signed, and in very good condition.
