Pinchbeck Art Nouveau Blister Pearl Brooch - Circa 1900


A intricate brooch inspired by & made from Nature. 

This brooch would have been made circa 1900 and has a flowing woven or "Lovers Knot" design with interwoven tendrils that were so popular during that time.

At its centre lies its focus; a pearly shimmering curve; although often referred to as a "Blister Pearl" this is in fact a beautiful piece of Mother of Pearl made from a single shell. Just look at the beautiful shimmering colours!


ERA:  Art Nouveau (1890-1910) 

The brooch measures approximately 39mm wide x 32mm tall and is made from a Rose Gold Pinchbeck.  

MATERIALS:  Pearl, Pinchbeck
(Pinchbeck is a form of brass that was used widely during the 18th & 19th Centuries instead of 18ct Gold which was extremely costly and reserved only for the incredibly wealthy. Today Pinchbeck is a rare find & can be highly collectible).

HALLMARKS:  None present

The Shell is a lustrous, cream colour & in good vintage condition.The pin and all component parts are also in good working order.
