To See What Condition My Condition Was In: Sepia Brooch

July 27, 2011

Condition isn’t an issue with me when I see something that has obvious beauty and quality. If I were collecting for money, then I would be concerned (a wise collector once told me never to buy anything with chipped enamel), but I’m here to teach, educate and curate. This one has broken glass at the back, but I don’t think you’ll complain once you see the sepia front with willow and urn.

To see more on this particular style, I’ll point you in the direction of this article.

Update: There’s some good discussion going on at the Art of Mourning Facebook Group – join in if you’re not a member and bring your friends!
