Absolutely stunning 1900s Art Nouveau brooch in carved horn depicting a cicada or moth with outspread wings. The body has a crved criss cross pattern surrounded by rows of diamonté rhinestones and spaced with little silver tone studs, which are also along the antenna.
  • These little beauties are so rare and collectible and I love the shape and design of this one.
  • It's got a vibe of a Georges Pierre but is unsigned, I would estimate it as French though.

Measures approx' 3 1/4" long

It's a wee bit grubby, (I've left it as is for the patina, it should come clean with care) and missing a few studs but otherwise it's pretty spectacular.
