Beautiful Gold and Enamel Brooch
Gilded Age Splendor
| A beautiful brooch from the early 1900s with
richly detailed gold and enamel work enclosing a finely engraved
blue enamel center. The edges of the goldwork are framed
with white enamel borders broken by budding fleurs-de-lis with
small pearls at the cardinal points. A masterwork of the
jeweler's art created by Wordley, Allsopp & Bliss circa
This brooch is finely crafted in 14kt gold with a strong pin stem and early safety clasp to secure the jewel when worn. The back is solid gold to protect the intricate enamel work and fine 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. No effort was spared in tending to the small details of this brooch.
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.
