    I bought this brooch few days ago in a charity shop in Brighton, paid a couple of pounds for it. I saw similar brooches on the net, usually described as Czech filigree from the 1920s or 1930s. However I read somewhere this kind of jewellery shouldn't be called filigree at all. It is pressed or more correctly stamped on a giant press out of thin metal sheets, while a filigree is made by twisting very fine wires together.
    Thank you dear CW friends for stopping by!!!

      Very pretty! Love the mount and this blue :-)

      Stricto sensu filigree is, as you said, thin wires twisted and soldered together.
      But Edwardian and art deco white gold or platinum saw pierced or stamped mounts are also called filigree:
