A rare example of a ceramic cabouchon brooch in light & darker blue, with what appears to be an unmarked silver mount & brass pin. On the rear the impressed mark reads "KENSINGTON ART WARE" with "C&L" in the middle. It may have been made at an off-shoot, perhaps of the MInton factory, which operated for a short time in Kensington London, during the early part of the twentieth century. It measures approx. 1 3/4" across.

Condition: The brooch is lightly crazed with a faint hairline which extends from the rim to the centre.
