RARE Antique Victorian Taille D'Epargne Bow Brooch with Garnets
This Fantastic Unique Antique Victorian Brooch features a Bow, decorated with an exquisite foliate design in black Taille D'Epargne enameling highlighting the design which is further enhanced against the bright Gold Metal Background. This metal is finely engraved throughout and gives the metal a textured appearance in contrast to the highly polished gold filled metal.
The center of the brooch is set with (2) Genuine Garnet Stones. The Garnet Stones are round-cut and set in place with prongs.
The Bow is embellished with tiny fringes and (2) a suspended 3- petal floral design. The top of the Bow is decorated with dual, scroll flourishes.
The brooch secures with a Trombone Clasp which is in perfect working condition.
"Taille d'epargne, sometimes referred to as black enamel tracery, translates from the French literally as "saving cut." It is a variation of champlevé whereby engraved lines forming a design are incised into the metal and are filled with opaque enamel- usually black".
Age: Late 1800’s which is during the Victorian Era.
This is an Exceptional Finely Detailed Antique Brooch which is one-of-a-kind and a rare find!
Measurements: The Brooch measures 1 1/8” L x 1” W.
Excellent Condition. The beautiful black enamel is totally intact and the metal is also in excellent condition, with the exception of metal wear on the back.
