GOOD: This Georgian 18ct Gold Paste brooch is in wonderful condition. There are signs of wear to the reverse of the brooch. For instance, the gem has been soldered onto the pin in its life. This is reflected in the price of this piece. That being said, the front is absolutely glorious and is a fine example of Georgian jewellery. All of the facets are crisp, with only some minute flea-bites to the Paste gem. Yet, this brooches' sparkle and inner fire is glorious!
