This antique Georgian period brooch has a heavy gold-filled or rolled-gold setting around the foil-backed simulated keep orange citrine glass jewel.
Measurements are about 1 1/4” by 1 1/8” by 1/4” deep. The cushion shaped glass stone is mounted in a rose-gold tone plate with some hand engraved curves at the corners. The outer frame is a yellow gold tone and has repousse scrolls and plump leaves.
The glass jewel has been backed with hammered tin foil—a method used to enhance the color and brilliance of jewels. There are a few small nicks and a short scratch on the table of the stone.
The back is slightly raised and the T-hinge pin shaft extends beyond the edge of the brooch as was the style during this period. This pin is of silver metal.
There are two areas of slightly different color on the reverse side and some light wear at the edges.The C pin clasp is on a soldered oval plaque.
A ring at the top of the brooch allows you wear it as a pendant (chain shown for illustration only).
