A fabulous antique Victorian pin known as a sash ornament (since they were often used on the waist to close a garment).
The domed pin is brass, it has great layered detail of openwork filigree framing a long, bezel set oval amber glass jewel.
The outer frame has a raised design of fine swirls, it is gently sculpted and has four domes in the corners.
The pin is quite large measuring 2.25" by 1.75".
It closes with a C clasp and heavy pin stem, perfect for closing a bulky sweater, cloak or coat.
Condition is excellent, no damage or visible wear, great aged patina.
A wonderful antique piece with great design elements.
