This delicate little lady was made by Jean-Baptiste-Emile Dropsy (1843-1923)one of the famous French medalists about 1900-1910. The design was made out of a heavy rolled-gold often made and called with the French FIX but I'm not sure about this. Two different hallmarks on the bail. One of the marks (photo3) I think to see a boar's head but it is so tiny that I'm still not sure, about the other mark I have no idea, perhaps you have? Signed by Dropsy on the front, as is usual with French medals, it measures 1” in diameter (with the jump ring, 7/8”), and weights 4 g.
Very nice detailed Art Nouveau Brooch only the pin has been replaced in the past by a metal one what's a pity.
So please help me to detect the marks?
