Max & Norbert Neiger Art Deco 'chinese' Brooch: Vintage Czech Glass:
Vintage Deco 'Chinese' Style Czech Glass Brooch by Neiger Bros.
A Czechoslovakian Art Decobrooch in brass and glass, which I believe to be by the brothers Max and Norbert Neiger of Gablonz. As far as I'm aware, the Neigers produced only costume jewellery, and as both were killed in the Holocaust, their full potential as jewellers was never realised. They never signed their pieces - however, the mottled-glass Chinese motifs and stylised, colourful clouds are quite characteristic of their work.
This brooch has some damage, not immediately apparent: the C-shaped glass inserts on each side are unfortunately cracked, and the left one is missing a sliver of glass (please see photos 7 and 8). The central panel with moulded Chinese writing is intact. The painted clouds have a few fleabite chips, commensurate with age.
This unusual and collectablebrooch measures 5.6cm by 3cm, and weighs 13.1g.

The item will be sent by Royal Mail First Class Signed For. For small items, I will combine postage, so two or more can go for the price of one; just request an invoice after the relevant sales close.
I will post to Europe by Royal Mail International Signed For. This starts at £5.15, plus a variable amount calculated according to parcel weight, the default being 100g or under. buyers OUTSIDE EUROPE
International Signed-For is now more expensive than Airsure for all countries outside Europe. Postage to such countries will combine the Airsure start price of £5.00 with an adjustment according to parcel weight, the default being 100g or under.
Airsure is the most mutually convenient way to safely send small valuables abroad, covers valuables up to £500, and uses a barcode scan to confirm delivery.

I will refund the offer plus costs only if the item is either misdescribed, or faulty. Otherwise the items are sold as seen. I package carefully, but cannot be held responsible for poor handling by the postal services.
