I have not always looked for jewellery at my haunts. The 'eye' is trained to do other things, I suppose. But then every once in a while I see something of interest in a box while I'm looking for treasure in the trash. On this occasion it was boredom at the Rozelle markets one Saturday morning a few years ago when I saw this little brooch. No marks and so the dealer had it cheap. But it was the fact that it combined two metals that interested me.
But no marks means "not so easy to attribute", too.
Perhaps someone will help me here?
It looks Japanese in a way.
Almost Art Nouveau!
Nice silver wire work on a gold bar and pin.
