Liberty & Co Enamelled Silver Brooch*
Rare Liberty & Co silver and enamel brooch with a beautifully fluid form, designed by Jessie M. King..
Multicoloured enamels are used to great effect and a small matrix turquoise cabochon is set in the centre.
The brooch is completed with an elongated natural pearl drop.
At some stage during its life a small section of the lower part of the turquoise has come adrift as can be seen in our photos. However, we consider this still to be a very desirable piece of jewellery and we have not been tempted to have a replacement stone set in its place.
Showing on the reverse the impressed quatrefoil Liberty & Co mark used in 1903/04. Also marked ‘silver’. The width is approximately 3.5 cm.
N.B. See also item 12830 – similar brooch but with different coloured enamels, red enamelled centre instead of turquoise stone and without the pearl drop.
