Carved Cinnabar and Filigree Gold Vermeil Oval Brooch circa 1930s

49.95 GBP42.46 GBP
This old Chinese brooch is circa 1930s

Made from gold vermeil ( silver with a thin layer of gold coating) , the setting is in an intricate filigree design of loops and coils, decorated with a twirled ribbon design enamelled in mauve and turquoise around the outside edge, the work is highly detailed and delicate. In the centre is a carved cinnabar cabochon depicting a spray of blooms, leaves and buds, fastening with a roll lock safety clasp . The brooch is stamped 925 on the reverse.
The brooch is in very good condition, it has no damage and the gold plate is still present although slightly dulled over time and with slight tarnishing to the reverse, the clasp is still in great working order albeit a little bent. I have not cleaned this item due to it's age and the natural materials used, and I prefer to leave my older pieces looking as if they have had a life lived.  Please see photographs for close ups and other angles, these photos are extreme close ups so will show any surface marks very clearly that are not immediately visible to the naked eye .

Measures approximately 4cm x 3cm x 1cm ( 1.57 ins. x 1.18 ins. x 0.39 ins. )

Box shown is for illustrative purposes only but this item will come nicely packaged ready to present as a gift.

This item is currently only offered for delivery within the UK due to restrictions on insuring precious metals by post overseas. Thank you for your understanding.
