On offer is this stunning & rather rare Victorian faux tortoiseshell (horn) brooch.
Exquisitely detailed as only the Victorians could!
In a large, circular domed shape, with inner & outer borders of yellow gold; within this is an elaborate display, almost like peacock feathers, beautifully decorated in gold and silver.
Interestingly, this brooch has a double row gold outer frame to back..whilst unusual to find, it does serve as testimony to the fact that the Victorians never compromised on detail, even to the back of a piece!
A fabulous example for collectors!
Tube hinge, pin and 'c' catch, in good working order.
Measurements: 1 3/8 " in diameter.
