An Angel Skin Brooch After Julien Duval
An angel skin coral, enamel, chalcedony and diamond-set brooch after Julien Duval comprising a carved angel skin coral putti with rose diamond-set silver wings riding upon the back of a firefly with a carved pale green translucent chalcedony body, gold legs and iridescent enamelled gold wings, harnessed with twisted gold wire reins, measuring approximately 4cms x 3.5cms, in fitted, shaped leather presentation case with tooled gilt decoration and bevelled glass front, gross weight 8.5 grams.
This delightful, hand-crafted brooch is a copy of a beautiful jewel by the Art Nouveau jeweller, Julien Duval. A cherub carved from rare angel skin coral sits atop a chalcedony firefly, with luminous, shimmering enamelled wings. With additional gold, silver and diamond details, this is an exquisite object to behold. Eye-catching when worn but equally mesmerising as a work of art when displayed in its glass-fronted, fitted, leather presentation box.
Should you choose to make this purchase we would be delighted to send it to you in a Bentley & Skinner handmade leather case packed in a giftwrapped Bentley & Skinner black and gold presentation box. Shortly afterwards we will send you on a complimentary valuation of this item for insurance purposes for your reference and safekeeping.
