Unusual vintage brooch. This modernist black sunset brooch features a mixture of metals to great effect. There is a black cold paint enamel background with a silver coloured sun and gold coloured horizon. It could equally be a sunrise or a moon? I’m not sure of the date – it has an art deco feel about it and the brooch back features a C catch.
It appears to be an artisan made piece rather than mass manufactured and the glue application was a little heavy handed – however it is very sturdy. There are no makers markings. I have not come across another brooch like it!
Brooch weighs 15 grams. Measures 6.5 cm x 2.5 cm. Presented in a satin drawstring bag.
