Seagull Brooch - Sterling Silver - Hallmarked Birmingham 1920 (Sold)

Silver brooches with animals,birds and insects as their inspiration have always been popular. This  1920's seagull brooch depicts the gull in full flight with outstretched wings; beak open ready to grab a fish!  It has  been made using a casting process and the silver brooch is really detailed with the flight feathers, tail and eye clearly defined.  This vintage silver brooch would look very jaunty on a jacket lapel. This collectable brooch is English Sterling Silver and is fully hallmarked with the  Anchor to show it was assayed in Birmingham, the Lion Passant (Sterling Silver 925) and the letter 'v' for the year  1920 .  It also has the makers' mark, which is 'T & S' for Turner and Simpson, Birmingham silversmiths who first registered their makers' mark in 1912. Antique Brooches of this quality are getting harder and harder to find.  This particular silver brooch is in excellent condition, its only fault being a slight kink in the pin which is a sign of it being worn and loved over the years.  This silver gull brooch has a wing span of 3 inches and is three quarters of an inch wide at its widest point.  The pin to the reverse fastens in a simple 'c' type clasp.
