Condition

VERY GOOD. This Georgian green Queen Anna Paste and Marcasite brooch is in very good condition! The Paste is secure within their settings, with crisp facets that work wonders beneath the light. There are a couple of nibble marks on the larger Paste but nothing untoward. It is important to note the differing sizes of the green Paste was an intentional design feature and is often seen within Queen Anne brooches. The floral Marcasite embellishment does have slight movement on the larger Paste, but rest assured it is securely affixed. Although the back does have a few dings, she remains smooth and comfortable to wear. At 250 years old, this Georgian Paste brooch possesses a timeless beauty and will make a fine addition to your antique jewellery collection!
