Scottish Arts & Crafts Brooch by Mary Thew
Oval silver brooch designed and made by the noted Scottish Arts & Crafts jeweller Mary Thew (1876-1953).
Depicting a wonderfully stylised galleon under sail on a sea made of abalone shell, all encircled by a rope pattern oval border.
Showing on the back the dotted ‘T’ that signified her usual maker’s mark, although her work was not always signed.
Dating from c. 1900 and measuring approximately 5.25 cm wide. There is a tiny ‘dink’ low down on the back rim but thus is not noticeable when viewed from the front.
