    Attributed to François-Désiré FROMENT-MEURICE (1801-1855)
    Silver, silver-gilt, garnet and glass bracelet featuring a central helmet on a green jasper shield. The bracelet is composed of interlacing and volutes with ivy foliage. Unsigned. Very good condition.
    Dimensions : 18 cm.
    Gross weight: 55.1 g.
    Why this attribution? The materials, the weight, the shapes, everything points to a work by the Froment-Meurice workshop. The fact that many jewels from this workshop were not signed at the time means that a typological analogy must be sought. This bracelet features scrolls very similar to jewelry presented by Froment-Meurice at the 1851 London

    Exhibition. The stones are set in the same way as those on the bird necklace in the Pforzheim Museum or the black-and-white enamelled brooch in London's Victoria and Albert Museum. Last but not least, the shape of the bracelet can be found in several signed examples at auctions across Europe.

    LOT N°040

    Neo-Renaissance (Renaissance Revival) silver brooch from the mid-19th century, based on the typology of 16th-century jewelry, with hanging pearls (in this case mother-of-pearl) and a profusion of enameled architectural decoration on both the front and back of the piece. While the central figures bear a strong resemblance to those produced by the François-Désiré FROMENT-MEURICE andJules WIESE association on a number of jewels between 1847 and 1851, the differences in the background are significant. We are dealing here with "mass" production at the time. Yet today, these pieces are as rare as those signed in this sale. Why this rarity? Quite simply, because when tastes

    change and jewelry seems to have no value, it is thrown away, melted down or given less attention. This was the case with iron jewelry from Berlin, which is now worth a fortune even though the raw material has no intrinsic value. The same is true of brooches and pendants, which were very popular in the mid-nineteenth century but not at all fashionable at the beginning of the twentieth. The enamel is missing, as is the mother-of-pearl pendant in the center, but this is not serious. This jewel is a survivor of time.
    Dimensions: 7 x 5.5 cm.
