Victorians are naturalists, they love nature and love to explore nature and enjoy themselves in nature. Their naturalism is also reflected in the jewelry them worn.
This is a very beautiful and very elegant brooch depicting a section of a tree trunk, two squashes, and a vine with three leaves. It is realistically made out of 14K yellow gold (the vine is likely gold filled, all other parts of the brooch test as 14K gold), lots of painstaking details and overall, 3D sculpture like.
Measures approx. 2 inches by 1-3/8 inches, weighs 11.5 grams. In very gold condition, no problem to report, the gold filled leaves have some minor patina, which adds color contract and richness to the piece. The brooch pin back is in perfect working order.
