Large enamel brooch detailing three swimming angel fish. The color is lovely in shades of yellow, aqua and blue on a white ground. The details of the scales, eyes and bodies of the fish are done in a guilloche type treatment in which the base metal has engine turned details articulating a pattern. In this instance a very realistic one! The brooch is quite large at 2" wide by 1 3/4" tall. The reverse has a pin bar with a safety catch. Silver toned base metal, unmarked. Circa 1940's. Condition is great with the exception of a couple of teeny tiny pinpoints of missing enamel at the very outmost edges. Only noticeable upon up close magnification, but mentioned for accuracy.
