This incredible Georgian brooch is very rare, indeed. Circa 1770, it depicts a young man in the throes of anguish: one hand is paused in mid gesture while the other anxiously rakes through his flowing locks as he gazes heavenward with a distressed expression. What ever could the trouble be? Alas and Alack! Whether mourning for a long lost love, or simply gnashing his teeth over the next stanza in his sonnet, this poor fellow certainly draws one into his tiny world! And what a beautifully crafted world it is, with an 18 karat setting, intricately and finely painted sepia portrait, and a quartz cover. This is a wonderful find for any collector.
