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 brooch is in a classic star/flower shape. It's a good size and in lovely condition.
- A little over 3 cm across.(1.25 inches)
- Probably tombak, which is an alloy made to look like gold - very commonly used in antique Bohemian garnet jewellery.
- Clasp works well.
