Look at the size and sparkle of this amethyst cut glass and bezelset stone - it measures 5/8 inches in diameter and has no chips or scratches. The goldfilled Art Nouveau setting is 1 3/4 x 1 1/8 and has beautiful openwork. Note the pin point sticking out beyoud oval showing that it is old. C clasp says old too. Excellent condition.
Another Art Noveau sash pin - this one with an oval purple cut glass stone in a bezeled setting. Gilded finish polishes nicely. Pin measures 2 3/4 x 1 3/4 with a 7/8 inch stone. It has a tiny chip on right top edge but it fits right in with the facets - not noticeable. Stone is not set entirely straight either - proves that it is handmade. Price considers these boo-boos.
Beautiful, Beautiful. Art Nouveau sash pin with red bezel set and faceted stones is quite unusual in both shape and color. Measures 2 5/8 x 2 1/8 with open center and stones are 3/8 inch long. Finish is a flat or antique one but gold shines up on corner decorative leaves. C clasp, excellent condition. Stones are intact.
Beautiful! This brooch from the Art Nouveau period has a large cabochon amethyst glass stone in a bezel setting which I have had polished to remove any scratches. Now it really shines. Stone measures 1 1/4 x 3/4. Add the lovely gold-filled filigree work around the stone and you have measurements of 2 and 1 1/2. C clasp, Excellent condition.
This is the nicest Art Nouveau pin to have come my way in a very long time - and it is in very good condition! It is long - about 4 1/4 inches and narrow - a little over 1/2 inches, perfect for angling across a blazer lapel, wide collar or cowlneck. Leaves curl and twist from each end toward the rectangular bezelset amethyst cut glass stone which has a partially open back to permit maximum light to stone. Gold finish polished to a nice sheen. C clasp.
This beautiful oval brooch with purple bezel set stone looks like it was just cast in an Art Nouveau studio - it is flawless! The heavy gold fill appears shiny and like new and the amethyst glass stone is unblemished. Measuring 3 1/4 x 2 1/8 inches, this pin is an impressive sight - would look great on a blazer. C clasp.
This is a mini version of a sash pin and would look very nice at the neck of a blouse. 1 1/2 x 1 inch, it has the simulated buckle prong on one side and a dainty 1/2 inch oval bezel set topaz stone on the other side. Finish appears to be gold wash and shows very little wear: thus, very good condition. Doesn't look like it was worn much. C clasp contains the small letter g, followed by L P.
Nice old cast metal and gold-filled watch pin with twining and knotting vines. Notice the not-so-fierce animal at the base of pin - I believe it is a tiger but without my glasses, I think it looks a bit like Elsie the Borden Cow! C clasp looks like it may have been resoldered but doesn't show on front. Sturdy hook for watch, very good condition, measures 1 3/8 x 7/8.
Another brooch from the Art Nouveau period. Large sash pin of cast brass has a rough textured surface and open center. Leaves, vines and flowers twine across the opening and 2 very large tear-shaped cabachons of amethyst glass are bezel set. Measures 3 1/2 x 2 1/8, with 1 1/4 inch stones, gold-filled with C clasp. Purple stones have been polished to remove any scratches so condition is very good.
Large Art Nouveau brooch with nicely cut oval amethyst glass stone in center is gold-filled and has a cast metal oval frame around center stone which is textured and more rosy colored. Heavy decorative prongs hold the oval in center of heavy stamped brass frills. Pin measures about 3 1/4 inches by 2 inches, has a C clasp and is in very good condition.
Grapes again on this square Art Nouveau pin, but for a Pinot Blanc this time. Actually, these white grapes probably had a pearl coating at one time - what kind of wine would THAT make? A small cabachon of purple does not look grape-like but does add some color. Leaves, vines and grapes grow over an etched 1 1/2 inch square frame which has a rosy tone - gold wash still shows on back but is worn off on front. Clasp has a head rather like a safety pin and is set corner to corner so square is half turned when worn. Not your everday brooch.
Here is a substantial brooch with some Art Nouveau feathers, a hammered and goldwashed cast brass background and a cut cobalt stone in the center. Measures 1 1/2 x 1 3/4 inches, has a C clasp and is in very good condition.
Pretty Art Nouveau pin or brooch of flowing diamond shape with an amethyst glass oval in bezel setting. Brass setting measures 2 1/2 x 1 inch and has a C clasp. Amethyst stone is cut and open in back and has only the tiniest scratches, seen with a loupe.
Art Nouveau pendant has black glass surrounded by green, white and purple stones - Suffragette colors. I'm not sure if this is a genuine old piece or a genuine old reproduction from the 30's, but I know it is quite unusual and very showy. The 18 inch chain is a style I cannot find even in a supply catalog and that, plus the large spring clasp with no trigger makes me think it is old. The pendant measures 2 x 2 1/2 inches and the round bezel-set black glass is nearly an inch in diameter. The two purple stones and single pink and green stones are bezel-set also. Necklace has a flat finished antique gold tone and is in excellent condition.
