Attwood and Sawyer Dropper Brooch
This is a beautifully enamelled, rhinestone encrusted vintage brooch by Attwood & Sawyer (established in Wales in the 1950s). The brooch is articulated with its two connected pieces creating a 'pendant dropper' brooch, all enclosed by a deep blue enamelled ribbon border.
Attwood and Sawyer based many of their designs on the Duchess of Windsor's jewels and I've read that this one is modelled after an item from the Crown Jewels.
It's in very nice condition without damage and all stones are present. Any specks that appear in the images are inclusions from the original enamelling process and are only visible under magnification. The roll-over clasp is working and closes securely.
Stamped 'A&S' to the reverse, it measures 6cm x 5cm.
