This striking piece is the epitome of the Etruscan Revival era of design (circa 1860s). The 10kt gold hollow form oval format brooch includes nine ( 9) 2 millimeters seed pearls. It measures 2 inches across by 1 1/8 inches high in a solid two piece riveted construction. The raised central portion gives it dimension without heavy weight. The piece possesses a lovely, deep golden brown patina.
