A wonderfully detailed Art Deco Buddha sureté pin. This pin was made by Ghiso, the early twentieth century jeweller established first in Buenos Aires and then in Paris. This piece features a wonderfully carved green Buddha figure decorated with black onyx and diamonds. The Buddha motif exemplifies the Art Deco interest in Chinese style designs, while the onyx and diamonds and geometric design were all very popular during the era. This exquisite piece exemplifies Art Deco taste and masterful craftsmanship.
