Description

ITEM # 11512 (B-164)

Antique Art Nouveau sterling silver, marked 925 and marcasite floral tiered brooch with trombone clasp, circa 1900's- 1910.

Brooch measures 2 3/4" in width and 1 1/2" in length.

Very good antique condition with typical wear due to age and handling.

All marcasites appear original and are present. Upon looping, I found four that have chips. Not eye noticeable. The trombone clasp, patented in Europe in 1850, was named after the musical instrument as it had a tube with a round top. You would pull the top out to release the pin. These were used in the latter half of the 19th century into the 1950s, mostly by European jewelers.
