Dates to the late Victorian era, circa 1890.
Crafted in solid 14K yellow gold. Not hallmarked, but carefully acid tested.
Early floral bouquet motif, with a large bunch of five petaled 'flowers' - quite possibly forget-me-nots. Each flower consists of five deep red rose-cut garnets (fifty three in total!) and one tiny collet-set seed pearl in the center. All of the stones are present and appear to be original.
The brooch measures 0.94" from side to side, and 0.91" from top to bottom, and weighs a very solid 4.9 grams.
The back of the brooch has the original tube-hinge and pin, and an era correct professionally replaced C clasp.
Condition is very good, with no damages, and the clasp repair noted above.
