Fine condition. Lots of aging, wires have tarnished too and the white coating on some of the beads have worn off. It has also turned a yellowish tint. The florals in the middle are old plastic - not too sure what material most likely celluloid. It is slightly dusty, and in a pale pink-peach colour. There are clear rhinestones set in the center of each beaded cluster but they have also turned cloudy. The entire design sits on top of a goldtone scalloped setting. Pin-back. 1930s-40s.

Size: 60 x 30mm
Signed 'Gerry's ©'. Very good condition, minor plating wear where there were a few spots of verdigris (cleaned off) and are not obvious as they are located behind the curl at the top.

There is also some wear on the paint of the floral petals; but that hardly affects the aesthetics of this lovely brooch. It is made up of multiple wires woven into a basket complete with a handle and carries glass drops and rhinestone painted metal florals! Please note it does weigh a little on the heavy side from the materials. 1940s.

****

ANTIQUE JHP ART DECO BLUE LACY FILIGREE BAR BROOCH
Price: S$120.00 (US$100.00)

Size: 49 x 22mm
Signed 'J.H.P.' (J.H. Peckham & Co. - established in 1893) Very good - excellent condition, lacy filigree bar brooch with a gleaming blue faceted glass cabochon. The pinback is a wee bit bent, and the clasp is an old-fashion lever clasp. There were a slight bit of verdigris (green tarnishing) on one of the back inner corners but it is barely visible as it is already cleaned off; the blue cabochon has very minor wear on the surface which is not noticeable when worn. Workmanship is superior in details, highly collectible piece. This would be edwardian or latest 1930s.

****

VINTAGE VICTORIAN STYLE SASH BROOCH
Price: S$30.00

Size: 60 x 45mm
Very good condition, missing swivel but works as a C clasp. There are very minor signs of tarnishing spots on the back but overall the gold gilt is still in a shiny condition.

****


RETRO GOLDTONE SMILING CLOWN FIGURAL BROOCH
Price: S$18.00 (US$15.00)

Fine- good condition, matte gold wash has scratches on the surface. However when worn, the scratches are not as obvious than when observed from an angle and not too bad at a distance. The back with its shiny gold plating are in very good condition with minor nicks on the edges. This is a rather large and heavy brooch; I have included a rubber clutch for its pin back as the swivel clasp seems alittle loose.

****

Price: S$35.00 (US$29.17)

Size: 50 x 50mm
Signed '©A.J.C.' Very good - excellent condition. It comes with a matte and polished goldtone. There are a few nicks on the matte gold, but nothing serious. An interesting figural brooch with a juggling clown! This is a rather heavy brooch and will be suitable only for heavy fabrics.
