Antique Krementz 14K Yellow Gold, Guilloche Enamel & Pearl Chestnut Brooch Pin - Art Nouveau #c874
This is a superb Art Nouveau brooch from the Krementz Company! 

The brooch is constructed of fine 14K yellow gold, baroque pearls and enamel. It features a decidedly Art Nouveau shape with an open flared and swirled frame that is finished in matte gold. The center of the brooch holds a beautiful horse chestnut stem with five leaves. Chestnut trees, a symbol of luxury to Victorians, graced many antique era gardens and its motif is wonderfully captured in this piece. The leaves are guilloche enameled to reveal their veins, with green in the centers and reddish orange on the outer portions of the leaves. The green and red color scheme accurately capture the wonderful autumn color change of the chestnut tree. The center of the leaves and an offshoot on one side each hold lovely white baroque pearls that simulate the nuts of the chestnut which would be plentiful in the fall. The brooch closes with an old style c clasp that operates properly and holds securely. It's a magnificent antique gem! 

The brooch measures about 15/16 inch long, 1 1/16 inches wide and weighs 2.6 grams. It is signed with a mustache-like symbol that is the mark of the Krementz Co. and hallmarked "14K" on the clasp.

This brooch is an exquisite work of jewelry art and its beauty and quality are exceptional! It's the perfect piece to wear during the fall season and would really pop worn on outfits in brown, green or rust. It would make a wonderful addition to a fine antique jewelry collection and a superb gift. The brooch is in excellent antique condition and the enameling is wonderful. The pin of the pin back has a bit of a wave to it, but it doesn't affect the functionality or beauty of the piece in any way. It's a marvelous find!
