19th Century Extravagance

The decades between 1860 and 1890 saw the peak of eccentricity in fashion and jewellery, and this brooch is no exception.

Of intricate shell-form, ornately decorated with beading, paste stones and purple garnets, and completed with delicate snake chain, this brooch also has a pendant bale.  Marked to the reverse for the year 1868, it is in 15ct gold and in perfect condition.
