Story

The gargoyle is an element of Gothic architecture with no two exactly alike. Re-emerging in the form of revival spanning a number of years, characteristic forms such as these phantasmal images were often incorporated into the decorative arts. Typically used as a waterspout on the gutter of buildings, the mouth of the beastie is depicted as open to allow the passage of the water.

In characteristic pose with mouth agape, the gargoyle takes on the form of a watch brooch. Rendered in magnificent repoussé detail, the hollow 14k yellow gold creature flashes an intense stare through mesmerizing green garnet (tsavorite) eyes. The reverse displays the vertical hook from which to suspend a watch.

Date: Circa 1910.
