A stunning French brooch from the Art Nouveau époque by FIX.

This brooch is double sided and remains in excellent condition.

FIX jewellery is the process of high quality hot gold foil laminating onto brass of which was first created in France in the early 19th century by a young Parisian jeweller called Francois Savard. His process used an unusually thick layer of 18ct or 14ct gold foil over brass to form jewellery which would withstand long term wear and be easily mistaken for real gold. Auguste Savard took over the company in 1893. He registered the unique trade mark FIX with the authorities to identify his products as a high quality range of affordable jewellery. He engaged top rate art nouveau designers to design pieces such as Emile Dropsy, Tairac and Becker to name but a few. At the height of production the Savard FIX company employed 300 people.

This brooch is 18k gold foil with a metal pin. Measuring 2.7cm wide x 2.8cm deep. Groos weight 4.1g
