This is a pretty brooch in classic German Jugendstil. Made in Pforzheim around 1900. There is no maker's mark but the design is in the style of Max Gradl and Patriz Huber who were actively producing jewellery designs for the Pforzheim factories at that time. It is only marked 800 on the back. The floral motif contrasts with the geometric lines of the background, brought together by a central saphire-coloured glass cabochon at the centre.
