Unusual Victorian Gold Turquoise and carved Tulip Festoon Brooch/ Pendant
This unusual brooch/ pendant has carved white tulip shaped floral pieces. I have not been able to identify what they are made of. It is not ivory. It may be shell or white coral. The gold work is so beautiful, and although it looks slightly Nouveau in style, its details reveal that it is early Victorian, and perhaps a little older. I have paired it with a beaded necklace which appears to be quite old (the threaded barrel clasp is carved of the same material as the beads). The combination of gold and turquoise is so lovely, and this was immensely popular during the Georgian and Victorian periods. The gold was tested and determined to be 12-14k. It measures 1 1/2" in width and is 1 7/8" long. More pictures and information to follow tomorrow!
