This priceless, beyond rare, original, as good as undamaged surprisingly heavy solid silver double brooch is an absolute beauty. With lovely workmanship, as much care going into finishing off the back as to the front. I have been collecting Duet or Double clips for years & have rarely seen a more beautiful example, what makes these a little unusual is the terrific design of the clip back & the single spike which pierces the clip, I have never before come across this particular fastening. He entire brooch is made of solid silver, the pair of clips possibly being given a light Rhodium plate finish, though not sure of this, though usually a finish to top end silver clips to enhance the stones & to stop the silver from marking precious clothing. I keep loosing count, but there are at least 50 pastes. I have gone over this with a toothcomb &. There would appear to be only the very slightest marks to one or two of the larger stones. Clearly hand finished throughout, with sublime workmanship, measures exactly 5.3m. Across the width & 3.3mm (1.2) deep, & weighs around gms. You can clearly read the silver stamp CP to the back of both of the clips & the clips frame. This is fit for the serious Deco / Retro jewellery collector. The pin having a flip-over safety catch, not sure if the pin is silver (they rarely are being that silver is too soft). (I recommend you measure against other brooches you own to give an idea as to the size). Vintage silver & Paste brooch / Duet clip. 5.3cm 2.1. Original Box / caja? No but I will find a box for you.
