Here is a pretty, gold filled, Art Nouveau circa 1900-1910, pin inscribed ‘Fix’, a mark founded in 1823 with a secret formula for this type of 18 carat thickly gold filled jewellery.

The subject is Joan of Arc, the celebrated French heroine. And the pin is signed by L O Mottei.

The pin measures 1 and 1/16” (2.7cms) across the centre.

On the front is a beautiful, raised image of Joan of Arc. She is in her garden listening to her ‘voices’. She clasps her hand together as an angel with a sword hovers over her. In the background are sheep and a fine tree. The signature ‘LO Mottei’ appears on the right.

The design carries over to the reverse. Here is a quite different scene. Joan is about to be burnt at the stake in the square at Rouen. She wears a simple robe and clutches her crucifix. There are houses in the background and onlookers.

In a cartouche is the mark ‘FIX’. The old style c clip carries the maker’s mark,

This delightful piece which carries so much historical and religious significance is in excellent antique condition. The gold really glows! It will arrive in a gift box.
