Please find for sale a very rare and beautiful Jugendstil Art Nouveau silver brooch. The brooch was most likely made in Pforzheim, Germany around 1900, possibly by the firm of Andreas Odenwald. It is marked 800 Gesch and is made from 800 out of 1000 parts silver. Gesch is an abbreviation of the German word Geschützt meaning a registered and protected design.

The brooch takes the form of ginkgo leaves, a favourite art nouveau motif, and has a pleasing geometric symmetry. The leaves are set with translucent graduated-purple plique-à-jour enamel and with 14 blue faceted stones. We believe these small stones to be sapphires but may be glass.

The brooch is in good antique condition but there is some damage to the enamel. The left hand cell has a hole in it, there are small chips to three more enamel cells, and stress cracks can be seen in the other cells when the brooch is held up to the light.

Weight 3.7g
Width 1 6/8 inch / 44mm
Height 6/8 inch / 20mm

This brooch will be sent internationally by Royal Mail Airsure (a signed for and fully insured service), and within the UK by Royal Mail Special Delivery.
