An Antique Gold and Gem-set Automotive Brooch

English, c.1905


in the form of an Edwardian motor car, such as a 1904 Clément Talbot Brougham, the body set with calibre cut blue sapphires with yellow gold mudguards and footplates, the windows mounted with rock crystal with demantoid garnet headlamps and a platinum steering wheel. The wheels mounted with rose cut diamonds in platinum and gold, with platinum and gold wheels to the reverse so the brooch can roll across a flat surface.
