Art Nouveau Enameled Lady and Flowers Gold Brooch/Watch Pin  This wonderful  Art Nouveau brooch features a beautifully enameled lady with lovely coral flowers in her hair that are accented with diamonds and pearls.  The brooch measures 1 inch in diameter and is marked 10k on the fittings.  At some point the original "C" clasp was replaced in period with a safety clasp that is marked 10k, however I have the same brooch in 14k and suspect this is also 14k.  I guarantee this to be at least 10k.  There are three diamond accents (two in the flowers and one in her hair) and two areas set with seed pearls.  Overall condition is very good.  There is one very small area of wear on one of the flowers .  This would be a easy repair, however I chose to leave that option to the new owner.   The pearls have light wear consistent with the age of the brooch.  This is a very hard to find enameled brooch of the period and one I have only seen a couple of times in all my years of collecting.

Art Deco Enameled Sterling Lorgnette and Chain This lovely period lorgnette features lavender enamel with a white border on the handle of the lorgnette and the chain features the same lavender enamel.  The lorgnette measures  4 1/4 inches (to the large ring) by 1 5/8ths inches.  The chain measures just under 24 inches in length and the center drop measures 1 1/8ths inches (enameled section only).  The lorgnette is in good working order and "pops".  I think the spring ring clasp (it is not sterling) that connects the chain to the lorgnette is a later replacement and originally  the chain was attached directly to the lorgnette.   The lorgnette is marked Germany and sterling as is the clasp on the original chain.   The enamel is in good condition on both the lorgnette and chain.  Any light areas in the photo are glare.
