An adorable little kookaburra brooch dating back to Edwardian era, c1908! The Australian kookaburra brooch is a wonderful example of early Australian novelty jewellery design. Made of 9ct gold, the gold colour is a subtle rose gold with yellow tinge. The kookaburra is beautifully detailed to the front with textured relief detail on the surface portraying feathers, claw, beak, wing and long tail, the subject resting on a slender branch. A pink gem eye highlight adds further character to this gorgeous little fella! There is a square frame surrounding the subject. The brooch is hollow in construction and the reverse is plain. A pin and 'C' clasp to the reverse makes up the rest of brooch.

A set of Australian hallmarks are placed to the reverse of brooch- stamped with the early Australian 9ct gold standard 'sheaf' '9' and the Australian makers mark which is difficult to ascertain.

An adorable piece of Australian history for the collector, a gift, or for the avid kookaburra lover!
