Unique & Interesting Antique Aesthetic Large Garnet Brooch w/ Rose & Green Gold Leaves

Material:  Original Antique Setting, possibly Pinchbeck & Rose Cut Bohemian Garnets

Hallmark:  Czechoslovakia

Size:  1 & 1/8 inches

Quantity:  1

Beautiful antique Rose Cut blood red Bohemian garnets adorn this original, authentic Victorian brooch, c. 1860 - 80.

The eight point star motif is a period design, very indicative of the era.  Center portion, a smaller six point star, is raised above larger outer star, which gives a very three dimensional effect.  Additionally the stones graduate in each star, from larger on the outside to smaller towards the middle, which adds to the overall dimensionality, as well as increases the brilliance, due to the various reflective properties of the different size stones.All garnets appear to be original period stones.  They are a wonderful rich pomegranate color, flashing brilliant red when illuminated.  Each stone  is prong set in yellow gold, maybe Pinchbeck or low karat, possibly over silver, both widely popular at the time.

The original T-bar and C-clasp remain; both work well and function properly.  Clasp is hallmarked;  Czechoslovakia   This mark is worn and only partially visible, (first three letters extremely faint)  however enough remains that wording is discernable.

This antique brooch is in excellent estate condition.  With very high magnification we see one tiny, minute stone blem/chip, which may be original, as period technology did not allow stone faceting with a high degree of precision.  At the very least it is very old, as edges are completely smoothed.  Again, extremely tiny, not visible to the eye, nor with a magnifying glass, only under 20+ power jewelers loupe and only mentioned as our policy is to disclose anything noted, regardless how minor and/or insignificant.

Really an exceptionally nice, early antique authentic Bohemian garnet brooch;  clearly marked as to Czechoslovakian origin, which is rather hard to find, as many are not.
