A STUNNING EXAMPLE OF THIS TYPE OF BROOCH
I BELIEVE A TYPE OF NORWEGIAN SOLJE, OR WEDDING BROOCH
BLUE ENAMEL ON A SILVER GILT FILIGREE DESIGN
THE BROOCH HAS A PAIR OF ROUND PARTS TO WHICH THE FASTENING IS ATTACHED
THE SECOND PART HANGS DOWN FREELY
AND ATTACHED TO THIS ARE FIVE DANGLES, OR SPOONS
NOT SURE IF THEY ARE CALLED SPOONS ARE THEY ARE NOT THE USUAL DISC SHAPE
THE ENAMEL IS A DEEP BLUE AND APPEARS TO BE INTACT THROUGHOUT
IN FACT THE HANGING SECTION HAS ENAMEL BOTH TO THE FRONT AND TO THE BACK
EVERY TINY PART OF ENAMEL IS INTACT
THE GILDING TO THE FRONT AND TO THE BACK IS ALSO INTACT AND BRIGHT
THE MARKINGS ARE 830 S
830 IS A SLIGHTLY LOWER GRADE OF SILVER THAN STERLING
HOWEVER, IT HAS BEEN A STANDARD GRADE OF SILVER FOR A LONG TIME IN NORWAY
AND I STILL A STANDARD TODAY
THE S IS SPACED AWAY FROM THE NUMBER, UNUSUALLY
COULD THIS BE A MAKER'S MARK RATHER THAN SIMPLY TO DENOTE SILVER?
THE C CLIP FASTENING IS GOOD
THE FASTENING, THE STYLING AND THE 830 SILVER CONTENT ALL SUGGEST SOME AGE
