Jean Augis Enamel and Gilded Metal Pin, c. 1940
Hand-built, with applied cast hollow cubes around the edge of a square framing a central geometric design of cloisonne turquoise enamel. The pin has a recessed back and curled C-clasp in good working order. One corner of the enamel shows a bit of loss, and there are a few tiny pockmarks from the enameling process (see photo #3). The pin bears the incised signature of Jean Augis, a Lyons, France, jewelry designer and master metalsmith most active during the 1930s and 1940s. It measures just under 1 inches square and about 3/8 inch deep.
