Circa 1890, this wonderful Edwardian sash pin features a large beveled panel of translucent off white glass with fancy gilt brass framework. A finely cut and etched gilt brass cartouche graces the center, set with an oval ruby red glass cabochon. The Edwardian style enjoyed a brief reign, wedged between the ornate Victorian era and organic Art Nouveau period. It incorporated hints of each movement, easing the transition between two widely different schools of thought.

The pin measures about 2 1/8 inches x 1 13/16 inches with a 1/4 inch profile or height. Oval red glass rhinestone cab is approximately 12 millimeters x 7 millimeters. Weight of the brooch is about 18 grams.

Condition is excellent antique. All components intact. Amazingly, the translucent glass insert is free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks, Gilt brass components free from dents or improper bends. Wonderful patina. No polishing has been done. Red glass oval stone free from damage, retaining ruby red color and soft glow. We believe the pin back is original -- it uses the tube type hinge and simple C clasp. Pin shaft extends about 3/16 inch from brooch framework. Pin shaft also has elevation bends -- we think this was done to increase tension, improving security of C clasp closure. The safety roller was yet to be invented. Clean and correct. No damage / no repairs. Age commensurate wear only. Excellent antique.

The brooch is not signed -- quite common in early "costume" jewelry. Circa 1890s-early 1900s.

The gilt and the glow. Get sashed. At Cody's.
