Aged bronze coloured metal brooch with 3.25 inch motif featuring Egyptian goddess, Isis. Although not marked with the official house logo, we believe from the item’s provenance and notes of the former owner that this is an original late 1960s Biba piece. However, it may be part of the Egyptian collection from Derry & Toms in the early 1970s.
According to my sources, Biba's jewellery was not always custom made, and was often purchased at trade fairs in Paris and Milan. There were also occasional buying trips to Tunisia, and the Casbah on the ground floor of Big Biba was stocked with pieces picked up on travels form Turkey via Beirut to Morocco.
This item is in good vintage condition.
