The Brooch will come in a Ribbon Tied Box and would make a GORGEOUS and ROMANTIC GIFT!
A really beautiful antique Victorian foiled garnet and pinchbeck target brooch, or lace pin. The central garnet is faceted and set into an open back setting. The other garnets are table cut and foiled, set into closed back pointed settings. The stones are all original to the piece. They are quite mesmerising when they catch the light, with a wonderful pink glow. There is some nice engraved detail around the edges of the brooch. There are a couple of fleabites to the faceted surface of the central stone, and quite a bit of surface wear to is reverse side commensurate with age, which is to be expected with an open back stone. You wouldn’t notice this when wearing, only when studying the enlarged photographs, or scrutinising through a jewellers loupe. There is a small amount of antique solder around the hinge and clasp, again not visible when wearing. There is nothing in my opinion which detracts from its immense charm. The brooch fastens with a simple C catch. It’s such a pretty piece.
Measures approximately: 1″ x 0.75″ or 27mm x 23mm
The pin extends out a further 5mm
The central garnet measures approximately: 11mm x 8.3mm in its setting
The round stones measure approximately: 6mm diameter in their settings
in Very Good Condition for around 150 years old.
