Distinctive and quite unusual, this brooch is a classic example of the style called Beaux Arts or, sometimes, neo-Renaissance. Items from this era – approximately 1890 – 1910 – are incredibly hard to find. Finely detailed fierce griffins/dragons and foliate motifs are frequent subjects of Beaux Arts style jewelry. This fantastic three-dimensional pin features four griffins with scrolled tails atop flowing curved lily pads. An undulating hand hammered open perimeter surrounds the griffins and lily pads. At the center of the pin is a bezel set art glass square cabochon with orange spots atop a robin’s egg blue background – a touch of Arts and Crafts style. Fabulous imagery! This beauty is gilt over brass, measures 2 inches in diameter and approximately 3/8 inches in height; it closes with a period correct ‘C’ clasp. The weight is 17.6g. I would assess the condition as very good to excellent – there are small barely noticeable darkened areas on the front, as pictured, but overall the gilt has a wonderful warm patina. With its fierce Griffin motif, this pin is quite rare and special. Enjoy! $145.00
