This rather stylish brooch is my last buy!
There was an unexpected bid struggle on it...

Only 1000+ feedback buyers!

But it is so neat, I needed to get it for €35 with shipping :-/

No marks, it is very light and mesure 1" square.

Any idea why so much dealers wanted it?

    What is it made of? It's so interesting!
  21. kyratango kyratango, 2 years ago
    Hi BelleEpoque! It is made of black laquered/painted stamped steel! So strange :-)
    What is your opinion on Agram's piece era?

  22. BelleEpoque BelleEpoque, 2 years ago
    To be honest both pieces seem nouveau to me... Yours is clearly Egyptian revival... Perhaps a custom mourning piece? In any case, beautiful!

    Thank you BelleEpoque !
    Thanks Effe for your love :-)
