An unusual brooch with two monkeys, one sitting on a 9ct gold bar with a natural pearl at either end, the other suspended on a gold chain with his hand holding a ring. The two monkeys are set with white paste and have green paste eyes. This type of brooch is called a “Novelty brooch” Such pieces were very popular in the early 1900s and often delivered a message. In this case “Two little monkeys” that could imply a relationship which was fun! It likely made by the Paris Diamond Company.
