A very pretty late Art Nouveau enameled 14K yellow gold pin featuring bleeding hearts. The flowers are beautifully enameled in shades of pink and white, and each features a tiny seed pearl drop. A grouping of leaves to one side are finished in shaded translucent green enamels. The bouquet is presented against a pleated circle brooch. The combination of the enameled flowers and the circle brooch is characteristic of Krementz’s work in the 1930s, when they were spanning the divide between the older Art Nouveau styles and the fashionable Retro styles. The back is marked with Krementz’s hallmark. Tested and guaranteed 14K gold.
Origin: America, ca. 1930. Condition: excellent, no enamel damage. Size: 1-3/16” diameter. Weight: 7.0 grams.
