This is a lovely and delicate ORIGINAL example of the Art Nouveau era. It has been copied as a 1970's Nouveau Revival piece, but this is the 'real deal'!
It depicts a pretty young woman in the classic Art Nouveau profile style. She has very long flowing hair that intertwines artfully with vines and flowers. She rests one hand on her cheek in a pensive pose while the other hand supports a resting bird.
She is beautiful and would make a lovely addition to your Antique brooch collection.
The pin fastens with a rolling clasp. Possibly a replacement, but the pin itself is original and the brooch is marked 925 for Sterling silver.
Measuring 1/2" x almost 1" it has a lovely aged patina, and is in fine Antique condition.
