Description

This is of interest to both those interested in antique jewellery and also militaria enthusiasts. An antique brooch by French company ORIA, founded in 1867. The company specialised in high quality rolled gold jewellery for the popular market. In WWI the French press vaunted the superiority of the French 75mm cannon and this created a market for brooches and pendants with a motif of the 75mm cannon. This is one of those brooches! Stamped to rear.
