A lovely Georgian silver brooch set with lots and lots of hand cut paste each in the closed back setting with a little black dot behind them to imitate the culet of a diamond. The brooch is in the shape of a flower with the pedals curved to the back with rounded edges. All the stones are original and present.
It measures about 1 1/2" in diameter, the sterling is thick with the pastes all firmly set down with tiny prongs; in very good antique condition without chips or cracks when inspected with a loop and just some patina from age. To the reverse the typical c-clasp t-hinge for closure.
Likely English in origin, I had this sent to me from an dealer in England so yes, I think English, but possibly French, circa 1800 or thereabout.
