Condition

VERY GOOD. This antique French Queen Anne red Paste Marcasite brooch is in very good condition! The striking red Paste are secure, with remarkable rose-cut facets. There are a few nibble marks, notable under the inspection of a jeweller's loupe, but this can be forgiven due to her grand age. Each Marcasite is present and secure, providing a subtle Golden shimmer. The smooth domed back of this Victorian brooch does have some surface marks but she sits super comfortably when affixed to your clothing of choice. This Queen Anne red Paste brooch is just divine!
