**SALE** Georgian Royal Blue Brooch

The deep, rich, royal cobalt blue in this brooch was developed in 1775 in England and spread rapidly in popularity. It's believed that the popularity of this type of enamel started as gifts between royals and spread through society like wildfire from there. This beautiful piece, dating from somewhere in the mid- to late Georgian period, is adorned with an abstract floral design, all set with rose-cut marcasites.*

Condition: Measures just under 1". In great condition, no missing stones, no chipped enamel or other flaws. There may be some minor surface scratches visible only in reflections and surface soil.
