JEAN LURCAT GOLD SURREALIST BROOCH
This interestingly Surreal design is full of movement and mystery. Jean Lurcat was a well known painter, ceramicist and tapestry maker in France, and did very few jewels. His pieces are quite rare, and were made by Patek Phillipe, the noted watch-making firm. 18k gold. Artist jewelry is very much in vogue right now, and this is a great example.
From Primavera Gallery's collection of signed artist jewelry.
