Antique Scandinavian Silver Bar Brooch with Blister Pearl and Marcasite Decoration

This gorgeous small bar brooch has a touch of the Art Nouveau style to it and as it dates to circa 1910 it does fall into that period.  Made from Scandinavian silver the brooch bears just a simple 830 stamp indicating its silver content.  The focal point of this antique silver brooch is a natural blister pearl.  The pearl has an irregular shape and has a lovely creamy lustre.  Blister pearls are cut from the inside of a shell rather than forming in the body of a mollusc.  This pearl is held in place by four silver claws and it sits in a nice framework of sinuous curved silver dotted with marcasite stones.  This antique silver brooch measures almost 2 inches in length and is just over quarter of an inch wide at its middle part.  Fastening with a guarded safety pin type clasp this silver brooch is in very good condition with just a darkened patina commensurate with its age.  If you prefer your silver jewellery to be really shiny it would be possible to polish this brooch up a little but never put gem or pearl set jewellery in silver dip as it damages delicate stones.
