Antique Australian ’Stevenson’ 9ct Yellow Gold Cameo Brooch Circa 1910

Collections: Sold Archive

Delightful and early brooch by one of our most prestigious early jewellers and hallmarked with their makers mark - ‘Stevenson’.

This particular little brooch is a lovely example of his early work, measuring 2.6cm round, with a central cameo constructed of a very early resin/glass  quite typical of the era, and beautiful rendered with the profile of a lady in her finery.
Exquisitely claw set with quite frankly too many claws to count ! to a highly polished round border.

Open at the back with original ‘C’ clasp in perfect working order, and hallmarked with ‘Stevenson’ and 9ct.
