This vintage 1950's cast 12K yellow gold bar pin is executed in the style of the Art Nouveau period, with its flowing lily flowers, leaf fans, and open fret design. This delicate floral bar pin is ornamented with pink-cream 6mm genuine pearls, 5 in all, that are prong set in 12K gold.
Brooch measures 2 1/2" inches long X 1/2" an inch wide. This vintage beauty is in excellent condition, save for a very slight bent to the straight pin in back.
The last photo is of my grandmother, Antoinette Lussier Sherman, circa 1920, wearing a similar bar brooch with pearls...just to show how it was worn, back in the day. Lovely!
