Very beautiful and very special antique 18k gold French Art Nouveau "chimera" brooch, as popularized by the French jewelery firm Maison et Plisson Hartz between their founding in 1872 until the late 19th century.
The brooch is yellow gold in color and the pin is rose gold in color, but both are 18K and both wear the old French hallmark and were subsequently hallmarked once more in the Netherlands.
A gorgeous collectible. From wing to snake, the brooch is 33mm wide and it weighs 21.5 grams.
