Offered for sale: Victorian sash brooch in gold over brass with an amethyst color oval stone in the center.
The brooch measures 2 7/8 inches by 1 3/4 inches. The brooch is done in a gold over brass hammered metal technique used to accent the metal of the broach. There is an oval amethyst color glass stone in the center set open back in a bezel setting with twisted wire decoration. The stone and its mounting sit above the background metal of the brooch in a cutout section of the brooch. The brooch also has an applied decoration of grapes and grape leaves. The brooch has a Victorian c-clasp. The brooch comes from the 1880s to 1910 time frame.
The brooch is in excellent vintage condition except for a slight ding on one of the side facets of the center stone. I have reduced the price to take into account the slight nick on the stone.
