This very pretty, French Art Nouveau pin is marked for 800-900 silver and ornamented with pastes and marcasites.
The heart shaped pin measures 1” (2.5cms ) across the widest part and the same vertically, including the drop. It weighs 3.1 grams.
The pierced heart has a delicately engraved contour. Within the heart are delicate leaves, set with glittering marcasites, which overlap the edges in the characteristic style of Art Nouveau pieces. At the top is a sparkling, round aquamarine paste and there is another forming the drop.
On the reverse is an old style c clip which bears a rather worn boar’s head hallmark for 800-900 silver quality. It looks as if the solid and straight pin is a replacement.
This charming pin with its exquisite contrast of colours is in fine antique condition. It will arrive in a gift box.
