A Victorian era Australian 18 k (hallmarked) yellow gold brooch shaped like an orchid.

Following the gold rush in Victoria, Australia in 1851, there was a huge increase the amount of jewelry created. This resulted in a particularly style reflecting the new prosperity. This example is probably 1870s, when the gold and silver smith artisans were at their peak.

This lovely brooch is typical of the style whereby 18 k gold was rolled and then shaped into varying forms. Foliage and local fauna like emus and kangaroos were very popular. The elegant chasing details were added to give interest to the shapes.

The petals on this brooch are shaped in a very opulent billowy manner, and the buttery yellow 18 k gold would make this brooch a stylish addition for any outfit.

The central stamen is signified via a 2 mm simulated pearl.

The brooch is 35 mm long and 22 mm at its widest point (1 and 7/16 x 11/12 inches). It is 8 mm (1/3 inch) deep

The pin has a C clasp. The brooch weighs 2.9 grams (1/10 ounce). The age of this lovely brooch is late Victorian.

The price includes fully insured registered postage.
