Pearl and enamel brooch by Carlo and Arthur Giuliano. Set with ten round natural pearls in closed back rubover settings, to an elegant openwork floral spray shape cluster with very fine enamel detailing and secure pin brooch fitting to reverse. Tested yellow gold, signed 'C & AG', England, circa 1900.
Made by the world-famous Castellani and Giuliano brothers. As a revivalist jeweler, Giuliano often employed ancient techniques and tools in his work. Influenced primarily by the Renaissance, Giuliano created very popular brooches and pendants with enamel work. Black and white enamel, in the style of French jewellers of the seventeenth century, this technique was widely used to decorate his jewels.
