Description

She is really lovely — high relief strawberry agate, exquisitely carved, gold mount. This elegant lady is well-travelled: the product of Italian craftsmanship, she was purchased in Edinburgh in 1969, and since then has been attending cultural gatherings in New York City for decades.


H 3 cm x W 2.4 cm x D 1 cm


A simple brooch, but the mount includes a ring that allows it to also be worn on a thin chain. The pin of white gold suggests a repair, which may explain why it comes with a small detachable safety pin on a fine chain as a charming optional security feature. On the back of the mount is visible a simple inscription: this is not a hallmark but likely the mark of a repairer.


Donated by Linda Dennery.
