Beautifully etched and inlayed with silver and gold leaf, this vintage Japanese Damascene brooch is in mint condition.
It measures: 1-1/2 x 1-1/4 inches. It is domed about 1/8th inch.
Damascene is delicate work, done by Japanese artists. First etched with fine lines, then inlaid with precious 24 karat gold thread, gold foil, and/or sterling silver thread. This is a beautiful example.
This brooch is hefty! Domed and plated with gold on the back. This is not a light weight / flimsy piece.
The pin and pin mechanism are strong and work perfectly.
