Offering this Art Nouveau Plique-a-Jour* brooch with an intriguing enamel color palette. The enamel artist utilized lively red-orange, light blue, green and blue translucent enamels with chalcedony stone for the ends of the bar shaped brooch. Marcasites punctuate the piece along with a peek-a-boo design. A brooch that really makes a statement in near perfect condition. Plique-a-Jour pieces of jewelry were made by master enamelers.

Weighs 15.7 grams. Measures 2.5" long and 3/4" wide. Well-working swivel clasp. Marked 935 which is a better silver content than sterling (925).

No repairs or condition issues were found on this captivating brooch.

* Plique a Jour is a style of enameling in which usually transparent enamels are fused into the openings of a metal filigree to produce an effect suggestive of stained glass. The words are French for "letting in daylight". The technique is not often used because it is very challenging technically: high time consumption with a high failure rate. The technique was originally developed in the Byzantine Empire in 6th century AD.
