These little fellas are as cute as pie! Both monkeys are encrusted with sparkling marcasite gems with the suspended monkey set with marcasite gems all over his body. The eyes are highlighted with ruby colour gems (one ruby colour eye is missing to suspended monkey). The detailed brooch depicts a monkey sitting on a bar with another monkey playfully suspended from 1/25" trace chain. The beautifully made monkey brooch is crafted in 935 Silver- more than likely English, possibly French and dating back to late Edwardian era to early Art Deco era, circa 1920. A pin and revolver clasp connection to reverse. Stamped "935" to back of brooch

An animated, quirky brooch for the lady who has distinct taste!

All original marcasite gems intact with none missing. The pin and connection is in good working order. A beautiful novelty treasure...
