Large Art Nouveau Italian Goddess with Peacock Feather Sterling Silver and Marcasite Brooch.
Marked 925 for sterling silver this beautiful and unique Brooch is adorned with Marcasites and dates to the Art Nouveau era c1890.
It was found in Florence and was probably made for the tourist trade so popular in the late Victorian era.
It is a rare design I have never seen anywhere else..featuring a long haired maiden holding a large feather.
The detail is exquisite and there is even a small Amethyst inset as a highlight.
A substantial size..it measures 2 1/2" x 1 1/4" and has the original double C swing lock safety clasp. The pin runs north to south making it invisible behind the brooch detail. So it could have a bale added and be worn as a pendant.
With all marcasites in place and a fine aged patina to the silver this is a unique OOAK Antique Brooch.
