In Flight - Enamel Swallow Brooch

The city of Newark played a major role in the design and manufacture of jewelry from the early 1800s through the 1950s. Innovative for the time as these manufacturers produced affordable jewelry for the middle-class American woman and man. During the peak Newark jewelers produced 90% of America’s 14k gold and 50% of its 18k jewelry. Among this group of major players in the jewelry manufacturing trade was the Carter Gough & Company also referred to as Carter Howe.

A most delightful example of the work of Carter Gough & Co. reveals itself in the guise of a 14k yellow gold brooch of a swallow in flight. Delicately detailed down to a pair of tiny garnet cabochon eyes, the realistic avian interpretation incorporates polychromatic enamel over gold. The hues of royal blue, hints of verdant green and iridescent yellow harken to the palette of Tiffany and of Mucha. Please note on the reverse the original brooch fittings and hanger for a watch or drop.

Date: Circa 1910.
