Geisha brooches were very popular in the early 1900s and probably at their height of popularity in the 1920s. These are a little later... one with matching earrings and one which has been enamelled:

    Actually interest in all things Japanese spiked in 1885-1890 with the very popular play - Mikado. Although it carried on until the 1920s.

    That is very very cool. Looks like it was fashioned in China. American foundries weren't particularly found of making ornaments for Chinese client's in the 1800's. My guess is that it was brought to the area which means it could be very very old.
    In any event ...it's a outstanding find.
    Congrats to you!

    When you do find out the origin please up date us so we know it's history.
    Thanks again for sharing.
