This large 1 & 1/2" by 1 & 1/4" Georgian brooch betrays its age by its subject male with a long rat-tail wig. I caan't be sure, but I think the silhouette is eglomise. It is INCREDIBLY fine--the young man's cravat and hair ribbon are perfectly detailed. And his profile is elegant, not crude like some more primitive profiles. The piece is gold-plated silver. The back was a glazed compartment for hair, but the glass is broken. I think it's a an admirable survivor to have kept its looks for over 200 years :)
