Art Deco enamel parrot jabot pin set with natural pearls
A brief history on the jabot pin:
The jabot pin was first made in the 18th century and were actually worn by men to secure the ruffled lace at the front of their shirts, called a “jabot”. Differing from a brooch, in that they are worn with each side showing and the fabric visible between the two ends. Finding a major resurgence in popularity during the Art Deco period of the 1920’sto the 1940’s, many of them were made in gold or platinum, and it is not uncommon to find many set with coloured gemstones and diamonds.
