Antique Bohemian Garnet brooch. Victorian, genuine Bohemian garnets.
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.
