Dangle filigree brooch FINAL REDUCTION SALE with faux tortoise shell turquoise and coral
This was not only difficult to photograph with the varying layers reacting differently to lighting, but it was a process of elimination to figure out what era it was made. With the roll over clasp, it is not Victorian; so it has to be from the Victorian revival period, probably between the late 1920s and mid 1930s.
It measures 3.75 inches long and 2-1/16 across the top half. The backing has the same work as pieces made in China, but without any markings. There is a very thin translucent layer of tortoise, then punched out and curved metal findings with a flower, leaf and wheat motif. That is topped with rows of blue turquoise beads and a center coral cabochon. This is a fabulous brooch. The only noticeable flaw is some discoloration on the back where the finish has worn away.
