Strikingly detailed polished Cherub resting in the bed of flowers
is hand carved from Mediterranean salmon coral,
showing great craftsmanship of Italian masters of the middle of 19th century.
The life like carved figure is set on 9K rose gold frame
with old C-clasp with the needle attached to a long tubular hinge.
The brooch measures 2” wide 15/16” tall
and weighs 13.2 grams.
There is no hallmarks, tested 9K gold.
The big toe of the left foot of the cherub is chipped.
Very good antique condition commensurate with age.
