Large and lovely oval cabochon of Peking Glass, also known as Dragon's Egg, is centered within this gorgeous multilayered domed brooch.
Cabochon is multi prong set. The prongs look like a golden crown going around the entire green cabochon. This is set upon a slightly tapered plateau of chased or etched chevron shapes with beading in between.
Surrounding this are five faux jadeite cabochons, each in a raised cup- like four prong setting.
Between each of these is an arched rounded crescent shape with a smaller Jadeite chaton set in the center, and flanked on each side with a floral design.
All this is framed by lacy ornate openwork scalloped edge resembling cannetille work.
If you think the photos look good, seeing it in person is about 90% better- no kidding. The gilt is shiny and bright and contrasts beautifully against the mottled green glass cab and jadeite chatons.
Condition is Excellent.
Measures 2" in diameter and rises 7/8" high.
