Art Nouveau Femme Brooch, by L. Janvier
ABOUT THIS BROOCH
An exotically beautiful Art Nouveau proto-flapper (or proto-hippie?), donning long and lavish leafy earrings, with her flowing locks headbanded and entwined within a classic double-whiplash frame, peers outward into eternity with a beguiling deadpan stare. Artfully sculpted and substantially rendered in rich gleaming 18K yellow gold - French (no doubt), circa 1900. Signed L. Janvier, she measures 1 1/4 inch wide.
