This is a lovely little silver lapel or cap brooch,
It is an older piece - probably dating to the late Edwardian era - but definitely to the first part of the 20th century.
It is a small piece - but exquisitely made - and has these tiny inset agate lozenges around the rim. In the centre is a little thistle made up for more agate stones - with engraved leaves around - the edge of the brooch is engraved to look like a tiny belt buckle (like you might find on a clan crest badge).
Signed on the back silver and with maker's initials.
The makers are Joseph Cook & Son Ltd - who was based at the Hibernian Works in Birmingham. - and working about 1905.
It measures a diminutive inch in diameter.
A very understated size and design - would look fabulous on a black beret - perhaps customised with the addition of a little coloured feather.
It is in excellent condition. It is not a new piece - and has some age to it.
Fair price for a pretty piece of vintage silver jewellery.
