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

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.
