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.

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

Size: 79 x 51mm
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.

****

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.
