Bar brooch in a case, Firma gebroeders Rozendaal, c. 1914 - c. 1920
In the early 20th century, the Dutch market for luxury goods was dominated by a few large companies. Jan and Dirk Rozendaal specialized in diamonds. The sober shapes of their jewels showed the quality and number of the stones to best advantage. This restrained luxury appealed to a Dutch audience. This bar brooch was sold by Steltman, a leading Hague jeweller.
