Delft Silver Brooch

£40.00

This a lovely example of a Delft medallion set in to solid sterling silver. Possibly made in the 1940s or 1950s. The pin is slightly misshapen although the locking mechanism works perfectly. It measures almost 5omm in diameter.

Delft Jewellery is the generic name for jewellery featuring Dutch (Netherlands) miniature Delftware medallions or brooch panels in a silver setting. The Delft panels are usually made of pottery and decorated with a blue and white windmill landscape. Delft brooch panels are usually set in silver. The emergence of specialist producers of Delft jewelry in Gouda, Netherlands, were greatly helped by the presence of an important silvers-smithing community in the nearby town of Schoonhoven.
