A BOUCHERON Art Nouveau brooch from Liz Taylor

This is a beautiful Art Nouveau brooch made by Boucheron in November 1900 in Paris. In the shape of a butterfly, it was originally designed as a hair comb. The piece displays an extraordinary plique-à-jour  enamel work and it is set in calibre cut emeralds, cabochon rubies, opal and turquoise.

It belongs to the Elizabeth Taylor collection that will be auctioned by Christie's in NY next December 13th.
