Here is a stunning original 19th century handmade and hand engraved sterling silver agate inlay pin.
The detail here is beautiful with hand polished, hand cut and hand inlay completed in the natural colors of Scottish agate. There is red carnelian, black onyx, bloodstone which is deep green with red spots and jasper. The colors are sophisticated and lovely.
I adore the design both cross shaped but also floral at the same time.
On the reverse there is a markers mark hand engraved into the pin and an original c clasp of the period.
Testing confirms sterling silver.
This pin weighs approximately 7.1 grams making it ideal to wear on light weight and heavier weight fabrics all year round.
It measures approximately 1 3/8" tall by 1 3/8" wide (35mm x 35mm).
Today few craftsman can engrave jewelry by hand. The quality and detail of the engraving here is just superb and very exciting to see! In the light the engraved details give sparkle to the brooch catching the light from every which angle it is viewed.
This pin dates to the 1870s and is around 150 years old! It is not a reproduction. As such there is some damage here and there to the inlay as the highly enlarged photos show. It presents beautifully and is ready to gift or to wear.
We shall ship in a presentation box for safe keeping
