Antique Australian 9ct Gold Hand Painted Ceramic Brooch J Lawrence Melbourne
Antique Australian 9ct gold Hand Painted Ceramic Brooch J Lawrence. This beautiful piece is in lovely condition. The brooch features a china painted by hand by an Australian Artist. Brooches of this type were made around the 1920’s, many in South Australia from the School of Arts and Crafts. Led by principal Laurence Howie, women were trained in the art of china painting including Maimie Venner and Maida Wright. Brooches were made and exhibited, often mounted with sterling silver or as in this case 9ct gold. Although the piece is not signed it is obvious this piece is a work of art. The mount was made by Melbourne jeweller J Lawrence and clearly marked with their pretzel mark, 9 and the Victorian 9ct Gold standard of a sheath of wheat. This is a delightful piece of Australiana with two forms of Australian artistry together. The brooch secures with a C type catch and a steel pin with tube hinge. There is also a safety chain and pin attached as can be seen. When this was done the edge of the gold trim was indented as can be seen and a small flake of china removed. There are a few light surface scratches to the face as shown. The brooch is 53mm x 44mm. Please note this item is original and not a copy or modern day reproduction.
