RARE Antique Vintage Art Deco Hand Carved Bovine Bone Edelweiss Flower Sweetheart Brooch in Original H. Trauffer Box, Swiss, Davos Switzerland. WWII Wartime. Collector. Romantic Present Gift. Wedding Bridal Jewellery.

 

Circa 1930’s

 

The Brooch will come in its ORIGINAL H. TRAUFFER BOX and would make a GORGEOUS & ROMANTIC Gift!

 

A rare antique/vintage Art Deco carved bone (bovine) Edelweiss flower sweetheart brooch.   A romantic token of love which is highly likely to have been bought for a sweetheart, either before or during world war II.  The brooch was hand-carved at the studio of a well known wood carver and toy maker – ‘H. Trauffer’ in Davos, Switzerland.

 

Some of the hand-painted detail on the flowers is a little worn in places, as can be seen in the photographs, but I think this just adds to its immense charm.  I would guess that this is from handling, rather than wearing, because to me, it looks as though it’s never been worn!  The pin on the reverse is lovely and shiny even now.  It is attached with screws.  The brooch fastens with a simple C catch.

 

  The plaque inside the box reads “H. Trauffer, Holzschnitzerel und Spielwaren, Davos”.

 

The Brooch measures approximately 2.25″ or 57mm x 18mm


Such a Rare and Evocative Piece – Particularly in its Original Box!


In Excellent Antique/Vintage Condition
