This is a small 1930s vintage brooch of sterling silver, by the American firm of Cheever, Tweedy & Co, Inc., echoing the popular platinum filigree pieces of the time. It has an openwork circle design topped with a flower-embellished bow. The circle is slightly domed and filled with dogwood flowers (at east, west, north and south), leaves and millegrain tendrils. The inner and outer edges have a bead-and-rail design and due to the great amount of textured detail, the overall finish is relatively matte.
The brooch is fitted with a simple c-clasp and is unusually small for a 1930s brooch – possibly a practical as well as decorative piece, for securing a collar or light scarf.
Size: 2.3 cm in diameter (0.9″).
Marks: Maker’s mark of C.T. on the clasp, STERLING on the reverse outer rim, with a scratch mark of SE, possibly a previous owner.
