An exquisite Tiffany & Co carved black and white onyx cameo brooch/pendant set within a substantial 18K gold and platinum frame. The central cameo depicts a statuesque and elegant woman. Did you spot her earrings and the brooch fastened to her dress? The frame is a bold yet understated design that alternates from platinum to gold circles and is most likely from the Art Deco era. The brooch weighs a solid 28.1 grams and measures 1.8 inches long by 1.4 inches wide.
Behind the cameo is the etched signature of the artist, which looks to us like “Casteliani.” The bottom of the frame is stamped “TIFFANY” for the maker’s mark. There is a drop-down bail that allows this versatile piece to be both worn as a pendant or brooch.
This special antique piece is a prime example of the unparalleled workmanship displayed by old world artists. A true treasure.
