It is unusually to see this level of workmanship and detail on a piece from that time, it is also quite difficult to find an Emile Vernier piece with diamonds. Emile Seraphin Vernier was a famous French medalist, engraver, sculptor, esteemed expert on antique Egyptian jewelry and president of Societe des artistes decorateaurs. We attribute this brooch to the very beginning of the Art Nouveau era likely late 1890s. This is a great historic piece both as a striking piece of jewelry and a collectible.
25.8mm diameter (around 1). Estate item in very good condition. Consistent with normal wear, small scuff on the front and some minor scratches on the gold to be expected on an item 120 years old. Layaway payments are not refundable.
