For sale is this gorgeous peacock feather brooch in enamel on silver gilt, by Child and Child. A nice weighty rare antique statement brooch that is truly striking and for which the main central peacock feather enamelling is original and perfect, this is a lovely piece to wear.
Child and Child were the famous artistic jewellers of the late nineteenth and early 2oth century perhaps most famous for making jewellery designed by Burne Jones.
The brooch carries the Child and Child mark but is not hallmarked. It is extremely heavy for its size (so much so that it may be solid gold) but I believe it to be silver gilt.
