Product Description

This piece of antique Australian jewellery is in very good condition.

The 15ct gold brooch is set with seed pearls and a single turquoise in a raised scalloped edged shape to the centre of the brooch. The brooch is marked to the back with an Australian mark of a unicorn, 15, fleece. This is the mark of T Willis and Sons Pty Ltd, Melbourne, used after adopting the Victorian Jeweller's Association mark in 1903.

The brooch presents beautifully. The original matt finish to the recessed parts of the design still exists contrasting well with the highly polished high relief areas of the design. There is one little curled point to the piece that looks different to the other three similar points.  I had assumed the tip of the curl had broken off but under magnification it does not appear so and may have been finished in this manner. Have a look at the photos where I have indicated the area. As can be seen it is insignificant and not easily noticed in general viewing.

To the back is what looks like a copper pin attached to a tube hinge and there is a C type catch. There is also the added security of a safety chain and pin.

Australian jewellery pieces like this are hard to find in such good condition.

The brooch is 49mm long x 15mm wide and weighs 4.55gms.
