Edwardian 15ct Gold Pair of Tortoise’s Brooches in Original Case




A pair of 15ct gold “novelty” brooches, as they are known in the trade. They are of two tortoises set with natural split pearls and matched turquoise. They are joined by a 15ct gold pearl set chain and are in their original case. They were retailed in Glasgow, Scotland, circa 1900-1910. The tortoise is an auspicious animal. It is a symbol of good luck and symbolises a long life, wisdom and peace
