French 'Girl with Poppies in her Hair' Button/Medallion.
From a Paris market comes this stunning Art Nouveau designed pressed metal button (medallion)..(looks like silver but is very light).
It features a beautiful girl in a typical Art Nouveau pose with Poppies in her hair (Le Coquellicots). A really stunning item from La belle Epoque.
One for the button collector..but could easily be converted to a brooch or pendant, it has no hallmarks and measures 1 3/4".
These light pressed metal buttons were 'all the rage' c1900-1910. Fashioned from a white metal it is in very good condition.
I am also listing another French button/medallion fashioned into a Pendant with a Peacock theme from the same market..see NN376
