Art Nouveau brooch Mexican Fire Opal 4.35ct. Vintage brooch pin, rolled gold twisted wire.
The dangling ball is a lovely touch. Size: 4cm x 3.5cm x 1.3cm. All original parts. C catch.
Excellent condition. Weight: 6.3 grams. Circa 1890. A beautiful example of everyday Art Nouveau!
The wire represents tree limbs or vines and in the centre is a wonderful bright orange Fire Opal. Attachment from the centre piece is hinged so it dangles. The jeweller made this for a common person because it is not over the top. I can't imagine you'll see another like it.
