An amazing antique Victorian pinchbeck gold brooch in an Etruscan revival design.
The brooch features domed amethyst cabochons set with silver star shaped tops embedded with turquoise blue glass stones. Each metal panel is also beautifully enamelled in blue and white detailing.
The brooch is finished with a secure hook clasp and is marked in various places with an unknown makers mark. The smaller panel also features hooks on its base I imagine to be taken apart and worn as a pendant.
There is some age related wear to the brooch and it has a slight faded elegance to it. There is a small patch of wear to the white enamel along with some flaws within the amethysts.
The brooch remains in good antique condition overall and feels like a very special piece.
