    A lovely French Art Nouveau stickpin (circa 1886) by renowned French sculptor Emile Vernier in 18k yellow gold.

    The beautifully sculpted round pin depicts a coin with the profile of a woman representing “Spring” (Printemps), the intricate details show flowers in her hair and a curl draped over her bare shoulder. The pin’s stick is twisted at the top and the piece remains in the original jewelry box from the well respected jewelry shop of Eugene Marcus in Berlin.

    Emile Vernier was one of the leaders of the revival of “Medallist” art in France around 1886. He received numerous medals from the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris, the Paris Exposition of 1899 and the prestigious French Medal of Honour.

    I don't know if there were other medals created representing the seasons by Vernier.

      She is a beauty! And Vernier is a well known medallist, as Dropsy and Roty (who designed the famous "semeuse" on our Franc coins).
      The color and finish of gold surface make the subject even more delicate, I love it :-)

      Are there any marks ? If so, the image of them would be appreciated.
      Thank you.

      Hi Ivan, No gold marks. I did an acid test and it is 18K.
