Antiques and Decor by Fiona
A vintage and superb Art Nouveau period 9/16" diameter 12K yellow gold stickpin (unmarked but tested) c1890-1900. This 2-1/2" stickpin features two Art Nouveau maidens with flowing decoration and bright beams of light flashing from a star in their hair. It has a typical period matte or Roman finish of deep yellow old (the gold was acid treated to bring a pure gold bloom or colour to the piece, apopular finish at the time). It weighs 2.0 grams and it is in very good original condition with no bends, corrosion, losses, damage or repairs other than a small dent on the rim at the back of the pin. All items are thoroughly and conservatively graded and all condition issues are noted; all items are secondhand and may have slight signs of gentle use. Surface shipping to the continental U.S. starts at $6 (other spots may vary) - insured is higher, and mandatory on items over $85 if paid with a credit card.
