An Aksel Holmsen silver, white enameled flower brooch

This is a very pretty, enamelled brooch in the shape of a flower. It's made from gold-plated Sterling silver, also known as vermeil, with white enamel applied to the basse-taille, petals and centre. It is secured by a pin and roll-over clasp.

Basse-taille (low cut) describes the technique of engraving a pattern and then covering it with enamel, such that the engraving is still visible beneath.
