Offered for sale is this gorgeous late 18th century opaline and paste brooch in gilt metal. Unusual to be able to find the early opaline pieces with their stunning blue and pink colors.
Each colorless paste stone has a hand painted central black dot underneath to resemble diamonds.
This measures 7/8ths inch by 5/8ths inch. It could well have started life as part of a bracelet or choker as the pin is a later addition. The stones are in very good condition with just one having a chip to the corner (visible under a loupe). Please see my last photo.
This super brooch will arrive in a quality brand new box.
