Beautiful vintage brooch dating from the 1910s. This signed Czech Edwardian filigree sapphire glass brooch features a lovely round claw set sapphire blue glass crystal in the centre. The metal filigree base and all filigree elements are brass which has no tarnish or wear. Dotted within the filigree elements are tiny white crystal rhinestones which really stand out against the gold colour. The brooch has a trombone clasp which features the stamp TCHEKOSLOVAKIE.
This is in excellent vintage condition and 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 weighs 10 grams. It measures 5 cm across and just over 3.5 cm wide. Presented in a beautiful satin drawstring bag.
