FRENCH MARCASITE DOUBLE FUR CLIP BROOCH

A French marcasite double fur clip brooch.  Fur clips has two sharp prongs instead of clips and were used on a thick material.  The brooch comes apart into two such clips.  It has French markings.  All the marcasite stones are present and it is in good condition.  I always love to have a selection of macasite in my shop at Grays Antiques - but the earlier pieces are not so easy to find.  Ref: 2323 B100/33  Price £120 - www.gillianhorsup.com
