Art Deco Sapphire Sailing Burgee Brooch c.1930

SKU: BR127

A fabulous sailing pennant brooch set with calibre cut sapphires for the Royal Ocean Racing Club.

 

This beautiful realistically modelled Art Deco brooch is pave set with sapphires overlaid with the crown and winged seahorse motifs of this prestigous club.

 

The Royal Ocean Racing Club is a gentleman's club in London. It was established in 1925 as the Ocean Racing Club, as a result of a race to the Fastnet Rock from Cowes, finishing in Plymouth. The RORC is the principal organiser of offshore yacht races in the United Kingdom, including the Fastnet Race, the Admiral's Cup and the Commodores' Cup. RORC was founded to encourage long distance yacht racing and the design, building and navigation of sailing vessels in which speed and seaworthiness are combined

 

The brooch is open to the reverse letting light shine through the sapphires.  It has a white gold pin, typical of the eras and a handmade hidden safety clasp.
