French 'Peacock Lady' Button/Medallion Pendant.
From a Paris market comes this lovely Art Nouveau design pressed metal button/medallion.. (looks like silver but is very light).
It features a beautiful lady posed in profile, with an amazing cap on her head made from a Peacock. The tail flows over her shoulders and becomes the wonderful edge design. A stunning Art Nouveau piece.
The button/medallion has a small hole drilled at the top edge, I assume for the addition of a small chain or cord. After all..who would not want to show off this gorgeous piece.
Measuring 1 3/4" it has no Hallmarks and I am listing as white metal.
Pressed metal buttons were 'all the rage' c1900-1910 and this is a stunning one for the collector of Art Nouveau buttons..but could easily be converted to a brooch or worn as a pendant.
The vintage condition is very good.
I am also listing a similar button/medallion with a Poppy theme from the same market. see #NN377.
