Important festive Tiznit adornment

Morocco late 19th century

White metal, enamel, beads, coral. Height of the fibulae from the tip to the bail 26 cm! This remarkable example of adornment consists of a pair of giant brooches connected by the chain with decorated balls, it is completed by a pair of earrings and a necklace with coral cabochons. Condition: given its age, it has undergone repairs, even “tweaks”: a buckle was badly resoldered with tin which gave way, the links of the chain were re-knitted, wear of certain enamels and dirt . One of the pieces bears the date 1229 (therefore 1882 of our calendar), but considering its wear, I think that the assembly is around 1900. I did not see a punch. One will profitably consult the works “Jewellery of Morocco: The beauty of the devils” of Ramirez and Rolot as well as “Jewellery of Morocco” of Rabaté and Goldenberg. Do not hesitate to ask us for photos or additional information by email or telephone.
