Exquisite, highly collectible, Egyptian filigree Violin brooch/pendant
We are in absolute awe of the incredible filigree work on this exquisite Violin brooch. Imaginatively conceptualized, richly detailed, this Egyptian artifact exemplifies fine filigree work of the region and the breadth of artistry that was coming out of Egypt at the time. It has a lovely patina and can be threaded on a thin cord and worn as a pendant. For us, this is a kind of jewelry we buy, not so much to wear but for the sheer joy that comes from possessing something so beautiful and meaningful.
P.S: while brooches may seem a thing of the past, perhaps it's time to bring them back? How about using them like a shawl pin, scarf pin, lapel pin, sweater pin or even a hat-pin?

Please note: (1) All the jewelry in this collection is vintage, and thus neither new nor in mint condition. Wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, etc. are in keeping with the age of the jewelry.
(2) All the jewelry has been gently cleaned to remove surface dirt and oils but not the patina- which in our view adds immensely to the appeal of vintage pieces. While in great condition (none of the jewelry is broken/chipped/in need of repair), all were previously owned by someone else, and while not perfect each is full of old history and charm. Please use accompanying photographs to make your decision and be sure to ask any questions you may have before purchase.
(3) It is also worth reminding that since the jewelry is shot in close-up mode, the pieces may look bigger than actual size. Conversely, some large pieces may look smaller in pictures. Always refer to the mentioned dimensions.
