VERY GOOD. This British Arts and Crafts Silver Moonstone Chalcedony brooch is in wonderful condition! Each of her Moonstones and Chalcedony are securely set and with each one having a slightly different cabochon cut, she is bursting with character! The detailing is firmly soldered onto her brooch body, having accrued an admirable patina in her grooves! This antique brooch should be worn with care, as there is a slight wobble to the pin, commensurate with age, but fear not she still sits in the C clasp securely!
