Antique Art Nouveau Yellow Gold Filled Swirled Ribbon Watch Pin Pendant Brooch #c775
This lovely Art Nouveau gold filled brooch is a multi-purpose piece that can be worn as a brooch or as a pendant or watch pin. When examined from the back, the piece appears to be constructed of repousse worked pieces that have been soldered together. The brooch has a three-dimensional, openwork pretzel shape. A beautiful flowing ribbon decorates the bottom of the pin and a curved gold loop holds a vertical gold bar at the top for added flair. The back of the brooch has a long hook at the bottom for adding a watch, charm or pendant. It closes and a two-part round hinge and an old style lever safety catch. It's a fabulous old piece!

The brooch measures about 3/4 inch long, 1 1/16 inches wide and weighs 3.1 grams. It is unsigned, which was common for these old jewelry pieces.

I just love these old watch pin pieces! They are so versatile and can hold a watch, pendant or charm creating a special and unique look. This brooch is in good antique condition without any structural damage. It has minimal patina to the gold on the front, but considerable dark patina to the back (photo #6.) One area of darkened gold from the back of the pin shows through the front on one side (photo #6.) This darkened area corresponds to the side of the pin with the safety catch and it's possible that it had to be reattached/resoldered at some point in time, causing this darker area. It's not absolutely perfect, but it's still a lovely piece that will give you lots of jewelry wear options!
