Vintage Enamel and Cloisonne Flower Brooch
This gold tone oval, 1 5/8"x 2", has a filigreed gallery around the perimeter. It has a black enamel ground, with red, and green cloisonne leaves rising up from the center. The flowers are made of pearls, or faux pearls, of varying sizes, embedded into the surface. These are covered with clear enamel, with enough layers to create a smooth surface. The pin also has gold painted branches, and foliage. Has no marks, oddly enough, but does have the old style pin and C clasp. In Excellent condition, but does have some scratches in surface layers of enamel. A most unusual, and delicate, piece.
