Falize Brooch


A Important Third Republic Period 18kt Gold and Cloisonne Enamel Brooch

made by Alexis Falize, Paris, c.1865

“Chased gold brooch centered with vivid translucent enamels depicting floral motifs in the Persian taste, the surface pierced and bordered by a chased gold snake, with an acorn finial at one end and a gloved hand holding a ball at the other. The counter-enamel is opaque royal blue.”

“It was as early as 1840 that the house of Falize began it career; once overlooked by historian, it is now valued as one of the most meticulous and tasteful jewelers and goldsmiths.”

– Katherine Purcell, Falize:  A dynasty of jewelers
