Vintage Brooch Nielo Nielloware Black And Silver Engraved Shield 1940s Old Piece

This is a Black and Silver Engraved Nielo Brooch from about the 1940's. It is in very good condition. Niello was originally a method for apprentice engravers to hone their craft. As time passed, the results from these 'tests' began to be appreciated on their own merits and voila! A new craft was born! A dying art form, Nielloware is increasingly difficult to find in modern jewelry. Plenty of the older versions are readily available however and perhaps most notable would be what are called "Siam Silver". Niello is also considered to be a forerunner of Damascene.

This Brooch has the old style open "c" - shaped like a tongue, barrel hinged pin back tension mount and looks just Amazing in person! It is an unsigned piece and so I am asking a reasonable price to reflect that. As with any Vintage Piece, there is some wear visible on this Brooch.

The Face is Bright and All the Hardware is intact and it still looks great! If you LOVE this piece, but can not afford the asking price, Make Me An Offer!
