This large Silver Art Nouveau leaf brooch with its Coral cabochon centre has our nature-loving heartstrings fluttering! We think it's an absolute stunner and a highly collectable antique indeed!
The Silver leaf brooch has a comforting 14g weight with such a beautiful leaf vein imprint that adds a wonderful texture that is incredibly lifelike!
Sat centre stage, the impact of the Coral cabochon works majestically next to the silver framework.
