Antique 19th C Century Early VICTORIAN Pin Brooch Brass Rolled Gold RARE!Antique 19th C Century Early VICTORIAN Pin Brooch Brass Rolled Gold RARE!Antique 19th C Century Early VICTORIAN Pin Brooch Brass Rolled Gold RARE!

An exquisite English pin from the very early Victorian era, with still features from the Georgian times. Circa 1840.

The pin is very sophisticated, with all kinds of charming details.

The base is brass, but at least 3 areas are rolled gold:

the tiny balls forming a crown on top, the dot in the center, and the ornate dangle.

All rolled gold areas have a light rose tone, which, combined with their strong shine, creates a contrast with the yellow of the brass.

The brass areas are both smooth and ornate, with some thin volutes added to the surface.

CONDITION: Very good.

The pin closes well, but this is the work of a craftsman, and it has acquired a slight distortion after 170 years or so, with the central ball showing a bump at the base (not visible), and the 2 ends not exactly on a straight line.

But this is not immediately noticeable, as one is mostly enchanted by the the piece, its beautiful proportions, and its totally unusual dangling triangle.

A very early piece with real originality and a poetic touch!

MEASUREMENTS:

Length : 2 1/16". Width: 3/4".

(5.4cm) by (2 cm)

Will be shipped "Registered" from Paris, including insurance and signature at delivery.
