Sweet Tweet! Antique 1880's Japonaiserie Inspired Brooch


So beautifully crafted, all by hand, this adorably pretty antique brooch was made in the Aesthetic period of the 1880's when inspiration was found in Oriental motifs typically depicting stylised lines and natural subjects such as birds and flowers. The charming natural patina which has developed over the years lays in the carved out areas and enhances the design, adding beauty to the artistic expression. All in base metal which has been gilded. 

Measuring 2.5cm by 3.5cm, the reverse houses a locket compartment in which to place a precious photograph or piece of fabric.
