Anticus Antiques

Circa: Circa 1901-1910
Condition: Excellent
Country of Origin: NZ
Manufacturer: Unknown
Unusual little Edwardian New Zealand jade bar brooch (NZ jade is called greenstone or pounamu by New Zealanders) - it has a little gold bell suspended from it flanked by gold chains, and the face is ornamented by two moonstones and a central seed pearl. The circular jade bar measures 4 mm diameter and 46.5 mm wide (1/8 inch by 1.13/16 inch). The pin on the rear seems a little heavy for it, but appears to be original (the pin itself is not gold). It just means that the brooch needs to be on thick fabric when worn, or it will tend to flop forward a bit.
Brooch would date around 1900-1910. Excellent condition.
