A quality early Australian piece by makers Duggin and Schappere in 9ct yellow gold. It can be worn as a pendant when hung from the cleverly hidden bale at the back, or worn as a brooch.
Each of the 23 natural seed pearls are in perfect original condition with no replacements.
The two small green stones are garnet topped doublets imitating peridot – while the garnet topped doublets are commonly found in jewellery of this vintage, it is unusual to find them in this hue. The stones show wear to the girdle under magnification, but are bright and lively when worn.
Measures 24.6mm high, 25.4mm wide, 6.5mm deep, not including the pin
