I can’t say enough about this fantastic Krementz brooch, an example of the finest of Newark Art Nouveau jewelry. Krementz brought innovative design and fine craftsmanship to a mass American market. This 14K gold brooch is one of their best designs, featuring a woman with a flower – either an anemone or a poppy – set with a diamond and surrounded by leaves and flower buds. It was made in three sizes, and this is the largest. The iridescent enamel work is superb, especially the blush on the lady’s cheek. You can find pictures of this brooch in several references books: Nicholls’ and Allison’s Antique Enameled Jewelry (p. 114); The Glitter and the Gold: Fashioning America's Jewelry, by Ulysses Dietz (p. 116); and Vivienne Baker’s Art Nouveau Jewelry (p. 187). Beautiful chasing on reverse. Marked with the umbrella with double curved handle. Excellent condition; one small blemish from the original firing on the flower. Measures 1 3/8” by 1 1/4”.
