We have a gorgeous antique French art nouveau brooch made with solid sterling silver and set with amber circa the early 1900s. The brooch features a beautiful layering of period-style silver leaves, flowers, and vines, composed in a circle with an offset amber cabochon. The amber is genuine and features gorgeous inclusions that sparkle when illuminated from behind. The back of the brooch has a handmade hinged pin with a modern c-clasp, probably replaced at some point over the years. There is a cluster of hallmarks and makers marks on the back of the amber setting, but they are notably worn and difficult to distinguish. The maker's mark looks like 'ES', and there is a 'W 925' + a symbol hallmark, but we're not able to find comparable pieces.
We have hand-polished the silver but it does have a nice rich patina given its age. The amber remains secure and in great condition with minimal scuffs or scratches. Overall this is an exceptional piece of historical jewelry.
**We carefully access each piece and authenticate it to the best of our ability. However, we are not gemstone experts and cannot speak to their quality and authenticity.**
