Vintage Florenza Victorian Revival jet black glass brooch with a detailed and ornate gold tone setting. Typical of Florenza, the reverse is as finely crafted as the front.
It’s very impressive at 1 3/4 inches.
A central floral medallion features teardrop shaped flat black glass petals, with tiny black glass accents in the very center, reminiscent of a sunflower. The flower center was made to have a little movement, and is held in place with three prongs. The central disc is framed with tiny milgrain bead detailing. This disc appears to be black glass (see image of back) with an overlay of gold gilding and gilding on the edges of the teardrop stones. Small black chatons draw your eye from the center to the details at the outer edge of the brooch.
Brooch is in wonderful condition. Clasp works perfectly and holds very securely. Minor imperfections on the edge of a few of the glass stones, but nothing concerning and only noticed on very close inspection. I could not capture the beauty of this pin in the images, but the black glass has a mirror-like glow when the light plays on it. It is gorgeous and very elegant!
