Antique French Enamel Bookpiece sash buckle birds Brooch


This is the largest sash buckle brooch I have ever had or sold and it is one amazing piece! Loaded with designs of birds and flowers and two huge fleur de lis centers this brooch measures a whopping 3 1/2" across. IT has lovely turquoise enamel that probably brings this in a transitional period between victorian and egyptian revival. It was originally a two part buckle and was in its early years converted to a C clasp brooch. I was told that when sash pins went out of fashions ladies had their beloved pieces made into pins so they would still be able to show them off. I have a photo where you can see that these are in the jewelry collector's book Official Guide to Antique jewelry by Kaplan) and they have quite a high price tag ( 650.00-$800) on them. This is such a huge magnificent piece with so many colors and designs that you really have to look hard to see enamel wear. It is one of a kind and won't last long so be sure you get this before it is too late.
