A super stylish stylized silver bird brooch in a streamlined design iconic of the Art Deco era. We can be pretty specific dating this piece to the early 1920's, it bears the Diana's head hallmark used in Austria until 1922 and the city letter 'L' for Ljubljana, a city once part of the Austro Hungarian Empire.

Lovely quality, the brooch is fashioned as a dove in flight with elegant outstretched wings that are set with sparkling marcasite stones, it has a tiny garnet for an eye and it carries an olive branch as it flies. A pin back with a safety clasp completes this distinctive brooch, a sweet piece of antique jewellery representing peace, a lovely accent accessory good for the gents or the ladies!

MATERIALS: 800 silver, hallmarked

GEMSTONES: garnet, marcasite

MEASUREMENTS: 1-1/2 tall (5.5cm) and a tad under 1-1/2" (3.5cm)

WEIGHT: 8.2 grams

DATE: Art Deco, 1920

HALLMARKS: stamped '800' for 800 silver, 'S L' for Austria and Ljubljana, looks to be also stamped with a makers mark that we are unable to make out and another stamp at the bottom of the branch.

CONDITION: in very, very good condition with faint surface scratches and light tarnish as expected, there are with no missing marcasite and the pin back is in perfect working order. It looks to have been originally gold plated but the plating has most mostly worn off (apart from in a few spots on the back) so it is completely silver now

At Mercy Madge we offer a carefully curated collection of antique and vintage jewellery. Each piece is hand selected with you in mind and we rarely come across two identical old treasures, once they are gone, they are truly gone!
