Antique Australian 9ct Art Deco Amethyst Bar Brooch Circa 1915 by A.J. Long and Co.


Collections: Sold Archive



Big, bright and beautiful perhaps best describes this wonderful early Australian brooch by little known manufacturing jewellery A.J. Long and Co. of 288 Little Collins Street Melbourne.

Centering a large 1.3cm round faceted natural Amethyst of light to medium colour, six claw set to a solid gallery, set atop a simple bar brooch which has nicely tapered ends.

Modelled in 9ct rose gold with a yellow wash common of the era, and now is that oldy goldy rosy yellow hue we all tend to love in antique jewellery.
Original double C clasp, pin and safety chain to verso for added security.
