Delightful vintage brooch dating from the 1910s. This Czech Edwardian filigree topaz glass brooch features lots of lovely metal stamped flowers with a claw set oval topaz glass stone in the centre. Each flower centre has a small topaz rhinestone and these are surrounded by etched leaves. This beautiful brooch is set in a silver tonemetal. The front of the brooch is in fantastic condition for it’s age . The back feratures a c clasp pin and some areas of the pin show some wear to the silver plating.
It is a classically good example of fabulous work of the Czech Gablonz metal and glass artists. Let’s remind the world of the skill of the Gablonz people (in Bohemia before the war).
The brooch is fairly large but feels very light and the open design makes it not too heavy to wear. Such a beautiful piece to wear. The shape is roughly an oval shape or rectangle with soft corners.
The brooch weighs just 13 grams. It measures 6.5 cm x 4.25. Presented in a beautiful satin drawstring bag.
