Silver gilt filigree and enamel brooch by Topazio, depicting a lovely Portuguese lady with a basket of grapes. Figures in elegantly traditional dress are found in many of Topazio’s pieces from the 1920’s and 30’s. The chains fixed to the pin makes the brooch move, and so draws attention to its wearer. Topazio, founded in 1874, is one of Portugal’s most renown jewelers. The square brooch measures "1 ½ / 4.2 x "1 ½ /3.6 cm. One of the hallmarks to the pin and the hoop is for Porto, the town where the maker is still working. Condition: fine.
