Antique Bohemian Garnet brooch 2
This is an antique piece from around 1900 (verified as genuine by the Austrian auction house that we sourced it from). These old Bohemian garnets have a wonderful deep blood red colour - by candlelight they take on a particularly romantic glow.
This one is an unusual and very attractive shape. The garnet at the top is large and facetted - altogether a striking and high quality piece.
- About 4 cm across (1.75 inch) by 4 cm high (1.75 inch).
- Gilded, so is probably gold plated on brass or silver.
- Clasp works well.
