This signed C & A Giuliano brooch of 18k yellow gold is clearly Renaissance influenced yet displays the open work attributed to “neo-Renaissance” design. A red guilloché enamel orb is centered within a field of contrasting black and white enamel with the trademark dots. At each of the cardinal points four (4) sapphires en cabochon are set in castellated bezels of yellow gold. The brooch displays a linear symmetry in both horizontal and vertical planes. Date: Circa 1896 - 1912.
