Made in Scottland during the Victorian era, this silver brooch, has a lovely monochromatic combination of brick-red agate in a fetching array of patterning. The inlay is precisely crafted with flush edging creating a seamless and glossy look to the surface.
The pinwheel whirl of movement to the design is eye-catching and the floral-looking shape gives this bold piece a touch of sweetness. With a sturdy sterling setting and a substantial size, this piece will feel weighty and solid in your hand.
This piece is fresh looking and must have been tucked away and well. Taken care of, the signs of wear are noticeable only on close inspection. The silver setting has a bright patina with very little surface wear. There is a spot of an old repair and irregularity to the setting in one section at the side.
The stones are all glossy and smooth without any chipping or surface wear. There are no other irregularities to the setting or signs of solder or repair and the piece has a firm shape. Material Sterling Silver, natural agate. Handmade or hand-carved jewelry is valued because it is, by default, one of a kind.Unlike machine-made pieces, a handmade piece can never be replicated in the exact same way, and so they will always reveal the at-the-moment intent of the individual maker. Often, the pieces have a distinctively visceral feel, as though you can sense the painstaking labor that went into every aspect. Antique and vintage styles that are typically seen in small or modest sizes get dramatic attention when theyre found in large, oversized, or bold pieces. These larger versions increase the collectability of a piece. _gsrx_vers_1233 GS 8.1.1 (1233).
