I PRESENT FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION THIS:

Magnificent AUSTRALIAN Hallmarked Antique Victorian 15ct GOLD and OPAL Brooch-Dangling Bell and Chains-By Rosenthal, Aronson & Co, Melbourne- Beautiful Design.

This lovely Australian Made Victorian Period Brooch is in excellent condition. It was made by Rosenthal, Aronson & Co, of Melbourne. Australian brooches of this quality do not come up very often.

The design of this brooch can only be described as exquisite. There is a broad bar running along the centre which tapers in shape. At each end of this central bar there are lovely little gold balls forming a pattern around the edge. Further in there is a ring on each end that appears to be looped onto the bar. In the centre is what almost looks like a crest with a beautiful and colourful opal mounted in the middle. Dangling from the centre is a beautiful gold bell, complete with its little ringer inside. There is two chains coming from the centre, they drape under the brooch and are fastened at each end. As if that wasn't enough, there is a lovely gold safety chain for extra security. This is truly a magnificent brooch that has been made for someone very special.

I believe that this brooch is a sweetheart brooch and may be representative of marriage. There are two rings positioned on the bar of the brooch, perhaps representing marriage. The Bell may be a wedding bell and the chain may represent the joining of two people. I am just guessing, but the Victorians where very symbolic with their jewellery. What do you think???

The Hallmark on the back is easily identifiable as Australian. The brooch was made by Rosenthal, Aronson & Co, 15 Collins Street, Melbourne. In approximately 1892 they moved to 275-281 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne. The brooch is Stamped with "a Flag with 5 Stars" followed by a "15", then a Fleece, which guarantees the golds purity.

***I have a 16 page print out about Rosenthal, Aronson & Co. I will include a copy with the brooch.***

* This lovely Antique Brooch is 15ct Gold and stamped with an Australian Hallmark on the back - please see last photo.
* The Hallmark consists of "a Flag with 5 Stars" (stars are worn); Next is the number "15" for 15ct gold; then a Fleece. Which guarantees the 15ct purity of the gold. This is the hallmark of Rosenthal, Aronson & Co of Melbourne.
* The brooch is very ornate and features an opal in the centre. The opal seems to reflect, blue, green red and yellow.
* The bar of the brooch has a ring on each side and a dangling bell, perhaps signifying marriage.
* The bell Dangling from the bottom of the brooch is a solid 15ct gold. This bell is in tact and still has its little ringer dangling inside.
* The Pin on the brooch is not gold it is a base metal as most pins are, it is in excellent condition. It also has a C clasp, which is also in excellent condition.
* The brooch measures approximately 4.5 cm in length, by approx. 2.3cm from the top to the bottom of the bell (Approx. 1" & 3/4" by 15/16").
* The brooch is in excellent Antique condition. Please examine the photos and see for yourself.
* The brooch will come in a quality Gift Box and would make a lovely gift.

This Lovely Brooch is from my personal collection, which I am down sizing. This one is definitely one of the most beautiful Australian brooches I have owned.

THIS IS A FANTASTIC ORIGINAL ITEM. IT IS IN GREAT VINTAGE CONDITION AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PHOTOS.
I have described this item to the best of my ability and it will be sold as it is. The photos form part of my description so please look carefully. If you have any questions please email me and I will endeavour to answer them in a timely manner.
