A fun-filled 14ct gold and white mother-of-pearl skiing rabbit brooch from the Art Deco period. Exquisitely modelled in rose gold to be full of character and personality, an elegant rabbit figure looks focused and alert, expertly navigating the slopes. A carved and polished section of mother-of-pearl has been used to represent the rich fur body, and perfectly complements the polished white gold ski poles. Antique snow guards have been modelled in rose gold and cap each pole with an eye-catching gleam. Skiing was developing into a popular pastime during this period, with fledgling resorts in St. Moritz and Gstaad actively encouraging visitors. Skiing was also developing in Scotland during the 1930s, with Aonach Mor in Aviemore becoming popular. Surviving advertising posters from the period by artists such as Martin Peikert and Roger Broders encapsulate classic Art Deco style, whilst promoting this stylish pastime.
This brooch perfectly embodies the sense of fun and enjoyment that skiing conveyed, and relates to the fashion for amusing animal figure brooches that was beginning to be seen in Jewellery.
