This unique antique brooch is of Austro-Hungarian origin and displays all the beauty and craftsmanship associated with this kind of rare jewellery. The filigree is of supreme quality & all parts including the gemstones, the openwork frame and the pin are original.
The precious flat topped Garnets are a rich, pink-burgundy wine colour, and look glorious next to silvery ivory of the Pearl!
The brooch also features delicate enamel work of bright azure blue, purple and deep sea green towards the centre.
Some of the black enamel towards the outer scrolls that has worn with age, (perhaps there is even a hint of Gold enamel here too) but is nevertheless an extremely striking and charming piece!
A rare an unusual antique brooch. Wear as a brooch or on a Silver chain as a pendant.

MEASUREMENTS: The brooch measures 35mm wide x 18mm tall
MATERIALS: Silver, Garnet, Pearl, Enamel

Austro-Hungarian items are very difficult to find, and this one is just lovely. It's rare to find them with any of the enamel intact, so it's especially nice to see the bright and beautiful colours here. All of the gemstones are original and intact with no cracks or chips. As with most antiques we do see some wear commensurate with age. The pin is a little bent but in good working condition. It's a very pretty piece full of authentic antique charm, and ready to wear straight away!
