This unusual French silver jewel depicts a Peahen nesting in shrubbery. The pretty hand worked silver is set with seed pearls. While I frequently find pieces featuring Peacocks, it is rare to find a piece showing a female. The brooch is hallmarked on the pin stem and c clasp for French silver and dates to the 1860's.
Details.....It measures 2.2" x 1" and is in good antique condition.
