1920’s Scorpion Brooch*
Striking silver and moonstones brooch dating from the 1920’s in the form of a scorpion.
The largest stone is used for the head with four more gradually reducing in size as they move down its long body.
A further three are set on each of the scorpion’s forward facing curving arms.
Those who know their arachnids will see that a touch of artistic licence has been exercised by the maker in that this particular scorpion has only six legs.
Approximately 7.5 cm in length.
