Jugendstil Brooch By Levinger & Bissinger - Blue Stone In Silver. C1900 Germany:
A Jugendstil silver brooch with blue stone (lapis lazuli ?) by Levinger and Bissinger, GERMANY. Their logo is on the back (see photo) along with DEPOSE 900 and a scratched code number (?) R/- 1120. c1900 I would regard the design as a crossover from Art Nouveau into Arts & Crafts or even the Aesthetic Movement - less florid/fluid than the Art Nouveau - even echoes of the Egyptian Revival. Measures approx 3.1 cm wide and 4 cm long (including teardrop). Slight hammered textured surface. Very good condition.
