Very pretty antique Watch Dial Brooch / Pendant (part gold & part gold filled) with a fantastic assemblage of applied Charms and an ornate Rose Diamond studded monogram in the center. The Charms on its face are two Winged Insects, a Crab, Flowers and are set with Coral, Turquoise, Seed Pearls and Diamonds. One flower has enameled petals. Minute traces of black enamel hour marks on the dial. The background of the center has a slightly raised dot design. The elaborate script monogram (ECK)?? is studded with small Diamonds. The piece was specially made for this person and was made from a Watch Face some time in the early 20th Century or before (the Watch Face and Charms is a bit older than the creation of the Pendant / Brooch. The piece is versatile and can be worn either as a Brooch or a Pendant (Necklace). Has an invisible return on the reverse----to wear as Pendant the return would be moved vertical and a chain run through the link. To wear as a Brooch, the return would be folded down and out of site. Would look fantastic as a large ornate Gold Medallion / Watch Face of Charms Pendant / Necklace and just a fine as a Charm Watch Face Brooch. The face of the Watch Dial is 14K Gold; the backing is gold filled. Shows very well in the photos and even prettier and more detailed in person. Note a few worn areas of enamel on the Flower Charm, revealing the gold underneath. Photos taken with and without a camera flash. Item assayed to determine the carat at 14K.
