Gold and Enamel Brooch with Mythical Scene
Brooch crafted in gold testing as 15 ct. with the enamelled image of a dramatic mythical scene depicting a winged cherub hauling a chariot above the clouds across a dark blue sky.
Standing inside the chariot is a woman with flowing robes brandishing a flaming torch.
Unfortunately our limited knowledge of mythology doesn’t allow us to go into the story further.
The enamelled plaque is set within an ornately decorated gold mount and enclosed at the back.
Circa early 1900’s and with a little inevitable surface scratching here and there to the enamel, but nothing at all serious.
We can find no signature on the enamelled image but it’s possible there may be one that’s either hidden by the mount or behind the backplate.
Measuring 4 X 2.5 cms.
