Fine Original Antique Victorian Bohemian Rose Cut Garnet Brooch, Marked; Czechoslovakia

Material:  Possibly 9 Carat, or Pinchbeck

Size:  Length ~ 3 & 1/4 inches,  Width ~ 1 & 1/2 inches

Quantity:  1

A fine large antique Victorian era aesthetic brooch, interestingly constructed in a stylized motif incorporating leaves and vines, twigs, or branches.


One leaf is accented with a beautiful pink gold center and the other accented with green.   Both leaves are completely encircled with old rose cut Bohemian garnets, totaling 60 in all. (counted twice!)


This attractive antique brooch is in extremely nice estate condition.  We see no breaks or repairs.  All sixty garnets are present and appear to be original;  rich blood red in color and quite brilliant.  The early hinge and pin also appear to be original and both function appropriately.  Pink and green leaves are etched, with a shiny satin finish.  The brooch could stand to be polished, as the gilt behind the rose and green gold is showing some tiny speckles, however we will leave that choice up to buyer, as some prefer the original antique patina be left intact.


The brooch is unmarked as to origin and metal.  We believe that the rose and green leaves are gold.  The body could possibly be gold filled, however 9 carat, or pinchbeck would not be uncommon for the period.


Certainly a fine, interesting early antique brooch or pin, featuring an unusual aesthetic, nature inspired motif.
