Exquisite William B. Kerr Large Sterling Chatelaine Brooch Coiled Serpent ~rare:
$283


I am pleased to offer this magnificent Art Nouveau Chatelaine Brooch circa 1895-1900. It was made by the William B. Kerr Co.. This company was highly regarded for their Art Nouveau jewelry and commands very high prices. It is hallmarked with the Kerr logo as seen in photos.

This piece is large measuring approx. 3" around the domed surface and a bit over 2-1/2" across the surface and approx. 1-1/2" high, across the highest point. It weighs 12 grams.

The design is superb with the characteristic undulating lines and scrolls of the Nouveau period with a pair of stylized coiled serpents on either side. The piece was originally designed with hanging chains to be used as a chatelaine. Three of the hooks are still on the back and one is missing. I am sure the owner used it as a lovely brooch after chatelaines became obsolete. It could be refurbished if so desired by attaching old sterling chains to the loops.

It is a rare, very beautifulpiece and would be a prized addition to a fine antique jewelry collection. As all of my sales, it starts at $9.99 with . Good luck offerding and thanks for looking!
