Art Nouveau Pearls

A striking brooch with breeze blown leaves (or are they wisps of smoke) anchored by three luminous pearls.  The beautifully sculpted forms are accented with whiplash curves and finely textured surfaces.  Created in 14kt gold, circa 1900.

The fine craftsmanship with which this brooch was created is evident on the back.   Note the sturdy settings that cradle the pearls and the strong pin stem and "C" clasp which secure the brooch when worn.

The "C" clasp is stamped "14K" for the purity of the gold.  To the left of the gold mark is an unidentified maker's mark - perhaps a dove in flight.
