The brooch is a beautiful piece of Art Nouveau jewellery, made in 1899.  It is complete with its original pin and C clasp fastener.


History/Maker/Age

This brooch was made by the firm 'Goldsmiths & Silversmiths' of Regent Street, London.  The 
firm was founded in 1898, and amalgamated with crown jewellers Garrard & Co in 1952.

The firm registered their mark at the London Assay Office in 1899.  This was the year the brooch was made and it's therefore one of their earliest pieces.

The firm rarely made jewellery and so this brooch is a particularly rare piece!  They are best known for their silver home wares such as bowls, dishes and candlesticks etc.
