Art Nouveau Plique A Jour Enamel & Sapphire Phoenix Bird Brooch - image 1 of 14

This is an incredible work of art. This is an Art Nouveau Era (1880-1910) brooch. It is a fabulous rendering of a Phoenix bird. The head of the bird is enamel in bright lime green, The wings of this bird are done in plique a jour with a range of colors from green to a deep purple-blue. The top edge of the front wing is adorned with 8 natural blue sapphires, milligrain set. The glasswork is very fine with the color transformation. It is all intact with no missing or chipped panels. Simply normal minimal wear from age (light crazing). The enamel head is also in good condition with signs of wear. The head is fitted with a bezel set garnet eye. This is a very special piece indeed. We picked this up in Pairs about 20 years ago. Although I can not be sure of its origin, I can be sure of its extremely detailed and fine craftsmanship. A truly spectacular piece. It is hallmarked on the inside neck sterling.
