Gold and Turquoise Brooch by Murrle Bennett
Art Nouveau 15 ct. gold brooch by Murrle Bennett & Co., set with a flat-topped turquoise matrix stone.
A light, open design with an elegant and flowing outline, finished with a good natural pearl forming the drop.
Typical of the style and quality sold by Liberty's and other major stores during the early 1900's.
Marked on the reverse with the MBCo maker's mark and 15 ct.
The brooch is just a fraction over 3.5 cm wide and is fitted with a roll-over type clasp, suggesting it dates from 1910 or a little after.
