We are pleased to offer a rare and unusual brooch. This spectacular pin features a square-ish gold gilt German silver frame. In the center of the piece is a genuine tiger's eye stone disc set with a wonderful tiger's head with emerald green rhinestone eyes and clear rhinestone in the mouth. The frame is quite decorative with circles or shields and balls all around and a smaller tiger head in each corner. All stones are present throughout the piece.
The brooch has a substantial tube and barrel hinge with a long pin and early "C" clasp. The brooch is positioned to wear on the diagonal and measures approximately 2-3/4"W from opposing corners or points. It is in very good condition with a nice patina to the gilt silver. Our estate jeweler/gemologist has helped us date this piece to the Victorian era.
