Lillie Langtry as Cleopatra Art Nouveau Limoge Painted Porcelein Brooch with Gold Ormolu Snake frame. Lillie Langtry, actress, socialite and arguably the first mass media supermodel for advertising Pears Soap in the 1800s, had the most recognizable profile of any woman in the world outside of Queen Victoria. Here she is in one of her most famous roles circa 1890-1903, Cleopatra, captured in a Limoges Porcelain Pendant with an asp circling the frame in Ormolu Gold-Finish (an amalgam of ground gold and mercury) over Brass.
