Comprising of a rich blue enamelled background with flecks of gold, made to mimic lapis lazuli, depicting an incense burner standing on a table in green and red enamel, the curling plumes of smoke rising into the air among stylised chrysanthemum flowers, embellished with a diamond character, flanked either side with diamond set Chinoiserie scrolls with jade terminals.
The yellow gold reverse of the brooch engraved with a vase on a stand, with a figure walking across a bridge with wisteria and sinuous clouds backed by a sunrise.
Stamped with French import marks for gold and platinum, circa 1930.
Dimensions: 2.5 x 3.7 cm
The jewel is redolent of the work of Verger Frères, who created brightly coloured Chinoiserie champlevé enamel jewels in the 1930s, often incorporating diamond set characters and motifs.
