Vintage Siam Sterling Silver Nielloware Black Vishnu Shield Brooch - 4-Armed God Figure #a441

Regular price $27.00
The wonderful Siam brooch is comprised of fine sterling silver and black nielloware. Nielloware is an enamel-like finish that was created with an alloy of sulfur, silver, copper and lead that was used to fill in an engraved design which was then baked, smoothed and finished. The center of the brooch depicts a silver figure of the Thai Vishnu, also known as the Preserver, a four-armed God in the center. The silver Vishnu is surrounded by the black neilloware, which sets it off beautifully. The brooch is finished with an intricate, openwork, scrolling silver design around the edges of the brooch. It's a fantastic piece!

The brooch measures about 1 3/4 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide. It is signed and hallmarked "Sterling Made in Siam" on the back of the brooch.

This is such a lovely vintage brooch! It would make a fine addition to a sterling silver jewelry collection and a nice gift. The brooch is in excellent vintage condition and ready to wear!
