Description

DATE: Art Deco, c.1920

Such a sweet antique novelty brooch dating from the 1920s. The two penguins have their flippers linked and beaks poised to kiss. They're set with white paste gemstones and finished in millegrain and black enamel, the one of the left as a synthetic ruby eye. Crafted in 935 silver, which indicates that it's origin is Germany.
