This is a Belt Brooch. I believe it was a converted Belt Buckle into a Brooch some time ago with the evidence of the soldier marks on the back. The piece is hallmarked for the maker La Pierre Which was a New York based company which developed in the late 1800's. This piece has a lovely layered art Nouveau design on the from of Irises. The buckle portion of the brooch still moves and perhaps hold a scarf study. It is hallmarked L along with sterling. The condition of this period Art Nouveau piece is fabulous with minimal wear, great patina. Please zoom into the photographs for additional details.
