This brooch is unmarked and I don't think it is silver. I bought it because of the wonderful details. It appears to me that every little twisted wire ring, every little rosette, every half sphere has been individually applied.
The brooch features also four small glass cabochons. I believe that they could be Hubbell glass.
The trombone closure has been around for more than a hundred years, but because it was also used for along time it is not easy to date the brooch based on the closure alone.
I have checked out traditional Dutch jewellery but didn't find a match. I am going to check out Scandinavian brooches next and move south from there if it doesn't lead any results.
Thanks for looking:)
