Story

Designed and rendered by Henry Blank & Company, this 14k yellow gold flower brooch is an example of the exquisite use of the technique of guilloché enameling. Without much effort, the incised fine lines which replicate the delicacy and realism of a blossom are apparent. Translucent and iridescent enamels of verdant green, pulsating pink and buttermilk cream and yellow display the astonishing coloration that this firm was able to apply.

A pinwheel of ten (10) cultured seed pearls accents the center of the flowerhead. The reverse reveals the brooch fittings as well as several small loops, which facilitates adding a few links to enable the brooch to be worn as a pendant. Three-dimensional realism leaves nothing to the imagination.

Date: Circa 1920.
