A really pretty large brooch which is extremely three dimensional. Lots of twisting and turning leaves with a nice piece of natural turquoise which is bezel set. It has professionally tested for 14K yellow gold. The entire piece has been hand decorated with fine pin hand hammered decoration by the bench jeweler.. The flora leaves meanders around and it is very appealing to the eye.. It also has nice weight which you can really feel in your hand.
It measures 1 7/8" x 1 1/2" across. The pin is in perfect working order with an open C clasp. A bale can easily be added to this piece or a chain can be run through the top portion and it can be worn as a pendant. The piece weighs 7.8 grams. Recently purchased in Boston myself.
It is not hallmarked but likely European in origin. Circa 1880, Victorian period.
Condition is very good. There is a light line on the turquoise. It appears to be a natural inclusion line. It is much less evident in hand. The Rubylane photo service is outstanding but does enlarge items by 7-10 times...
