Brooch with a Stag and Fawn Surrounded by Leaves and Intertwined Branches


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Carved ivory brooches showing stag scenes have been associated with the tourist trade of the 1840s and 1850s at Dieppe, in France; in the Odenwald region of Germany; and in Switzerland. In the earliest examples, the scenes are framed by rococo scrolls, whereas in later examples they are surrounded by intertwined roots and branches.
