19C Pietra Dura Brooch w. Chinese Lantern Plant 14KGold Mount

Delightful large pietra dura brooch; superb stone mosaic depicting a small flower bouquet: rose, forgot-me-not, Chinese lantern plant (RARE!) and lily-of the-valley flowers made of chalcedony, turquoise and , carnelian stone pieces. The leafs are made of green agate, the base is a deep onyx plaque.

The brooch has a fine gold mount – not stamped but tested, 14 K - rare for the Victorian era. The mount has lovely looped decorations.

The condition is very good, two small turquoise flower petals are missing, hard to see – please consider, the pictures are highly enlarged! The needle is possible replaced or re-fixed, it works very good, old security clasp.

Superb Florentine Mosaic ca. 1860/80 – a great Grand Tour souvenir. Measurements: 1.6 x 1.1 inches.


Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: black white green, Size: 1.6 x 1.1 inches
