J Tostrup Cancer Zodiac Brooch Vintage
Beautiful and rare brooch by renowned Norwegian jeweller and enamel artist J Tostrup. Cancer symbol (for birthdays June 22 to July 22) with a gorgeous emerald green enamel background. Whilst the symbol looks more like a lobster, it is a crab, or crustacean, and is commonly seen in this style on zodiac jewellery from Norway – it is not the (similar) scorpio symbol, this was how many Norwegian jewellers represented the Cancer symbol.
Material: Gilded 925 sterling silver.
Size: 22mm diameter.
Condition: Excellent (please see photos), there is no damage to the enamel.
This listing is for one brooch, multiple photos are to show different angles.
