Vintage Art Deco Marcasite Lizard Brooch, Ruby Red Eyes, Rhodium Plated. Special Occasion. Party Ball. Red Carpet Event.


Circa 1930’s


A beautiful vintage Art Deco Lizard brooch, studded with sparkling marcasites and ruby red eyes.  The marcasites look fabulous whenever they catch the light.  The brooch is rhodium plated, which is a metal of the platinum family, used on high end costume jewellery to prevent tarnishing. It fastens with a rollover safety catch on the reverse.  There are three tiny marcasites missing – they are tinier than pin heads so it’s very hard to spot with the naked eye.  Also, the tip of the tail is missing and there is a bit of damage to one of the legs (please see pictures).  Even taking this into consideration, the brooch is still very beautiful and very wearable, but you may not want to gift it for this reason.


Large size, measures approximately : 3.25″or 84mm from tip to tail

Looks Very Elegant On!
