Antique Art Nouveau Brass? Peacock Sash Brooch Pin Suffragette Colors & Symbols:
Up for sale is this antique Art Nouveau sash brooch. I do not know the metal, perhaps it is brass? The brooch features a peacock, green and violet colored rhinestones, forget-me-nots, and a water lily. The rhinestones are green and violet colored, two for the suffragette colors (green, violet, and white). I looked into the symbolism of the water lily, and in some cultures it stands for enlightenment. I also tend to think of white water lilies, hence the white in green, violet, and white. The peacock also stands for enlightenment and the "eyes" on its tail the all-seeing eyes of justice. The brooch is approximately 2 3/4" long and approximately 2" wide. I have not seen another one like it; it is asymmetrical, with the peacock's long, flowing tail and the intricately done water lily. I don't know how to clean this item- I will leave that to its new owner.
