This is a wonderful vintage Art Deco brooch with plenty of personality, featuring a bright and cheerful daisy centred on a bow. The design is lifted out of the ordinary by a highly-reflective chrome plating, reflecting also the Art Deco love affair with “Machine Age” materials. The mirror-like chrome creates a wonderful play of light over the dimensional details. It has deep ribbon loops, plump little two-tier petals and a domed flower centre.
The chrome plating is heavy and the underlying metal is thick and rigid. The plating on the the back is less reflective but will easily brighten with a clean. The brooch is fitted with a period rollover safety clasp with a gold-tone pin stem.
Size: 5 cm wide x 2.5 cm high x 1.7 cm deep including clasp hardware (2″ x 1″ x 0.7″ )
Marks: No maker’s or other marks.
Condition: Excellent vintage condition with only the slightest amount of edge wear, picked up by the camera but not at all visible to the naked eye except on very close inspection. Please note that this brooch is not suitable for very light fabrics, due to it’s depth and weight (see side view below).
