A beautiful Victorian souvenir brooch from Carlsbad, Bohemia, now known as Karlovy Vary in the Czech Republic which was a popular resort in the early 19th Century due to its thermal spas which still remain today.
The brooch features the most amazing wood and malachite inlay in what I see as a moth or butterfly but thats open to interpretation. The detail within the brooch is absolutely incredible.
The central panel is framed by red glass stones and the brooch is finished with a secure hook clasp.
The brooch is in good antique condition.
