Georgian Crescent Moon Paste and Silver Brooch

This brooch is in the form of a classic crescent moon highlighted by unusual scored lines delineating each stone. Each stone is set in a beveled trapezoid and held with silver beads. Between each trapezoid is a 1/16" deep scored line which creates shadow lines on the brooch. The interesting silver work of the setting creates a great deal of visual interest to this brooch.

The brooch is unmarked but tests as sterling silver.

Size: 1-1/8" diameter

Age: On the Georgian/Victorian border circa 1830

Condition: Good antique condition. The pin and "c" clasp have been either replaced or re-soldered; they are period-correct which suggests that this is an old repair/replacement. The surface of all the stones show wear with the two smallest being very chipped. Four of the stones, including the three largest, have great sparkle. Five of the stones have darkened to varying degrees including the two smallest which are "dead"; the photo quite accurately displays this. Despite this, the pin is very attractive and has survived about 200 years ready for a new owner.
