Beautiful Gold and Enamel Brooch

Edwardian guilloche enamel brooch. (J9413)

Gilded Age Splendor

Richly detailed gold and enamel work frame the finely engraved blue guilloche enamel center of this elegant brooch from the Gilded Age.  The edges of the goldwork are accented with white enamel and the cardinal points are embellished with budding fleurs-de-lis set with small pearls.  A masterwork of the jeweler's art created by Wordley, Allsopp & Bliss in 14kt gold in the years around 1910.

This brooch is finely crafted with a solid gold back protecting the intricate enamel and gold work on the front.  Note the clean edges of the cutout work around the fleurs-de-lis and the smooth, even finish of the gold surfaces.  A sturdy pin stem and early safety clasp secure the brooch when worn.  No effort was spared in tending to the small details of this jewel.

The top of the clasp is stamped with the maker's mark of Wordley, Allsopp & Bliss ("WAB"), a maker of fine brooches and other jewels during the early decades of the last century.  Beneath the maker's mark "14K" is stamped for the purity of the gold.
