Description

GEM SET AND DIAMOND BROOCH, WOLFERS, 1940s


Of stylised floral design, set with baguette, brilliant - and circular-cut diamonds, further highlighted with cabochon rubies, emeralds and sapphires, maker's mark for Wolfers. 


Philippe Wolfers (1858-1929) was a Belgian jeweller, sculptor and glassware designer, most famous for his Art Nouveau jewellery, examples of which can be seen in the V&A and the King Baudouin Foundation in Brussels. After his death in 1929 the family firm (founded in 1812) continued to produce jewellery in fashionable contemporary styles, often strongly in tune with French trends, such as this example from the 1940s.
