There have been over the years a lot of antique jewelry made from animal claw or tooth passed through my hands. Both in silver and in gold. But such special if I show you today I never saw before.
I'm not a fan of jewelry made of animals but they belong in the ancient heritage in jewelry field. And fortunately, these animals are now well protected though still poached and hunted animals prohibited.
The brooch that I show you today is very old. I can not say how old. It is made of a crocodiles tooth in a special and rare silver granulated setting. The silver content, I cannot tell. There are 2 same marks. I cannot decode they look like a double U (U) maybe you have an idea?
At the bottom of the chain hangs a very detailed head of a crocodile, you can even count the teeth and with his teeth put in a gold set Rubin.
This brooch is quite large; 6 x 5.5 cm.
Who can tell me anything more about the origin?
