A rare and finely made 18ct gold eagle brooch by the well known maker Gaston-Eugene-Omar-Laffitte and made circa 1880-1900. Lafitte is also well known for his plique-à-jour enamel techniques. Winged female figures were a specialty. He Exhibited regularly at the Paris Salons. He also produced small silver repoussé and engraved accessories such as matchboxes, mirrors and lorgnettes. This brooch has a removable brooch fitting as it can also be worn as a pendant. The eagle is clutching an old mine cut diamond in his claws. It is in a platinum setting as the French started to use platinum about twenty years earlier than the English jewellers.
