Victorian Antique Faceted Amethyst Brooch
A very lovely Victorian brooch with a large fully faceted amethyst stone sitting amidst snake like scrolls. The metal is a gold tone wash over a base metal. It is quite substantial in size at 6.5cms x 4cms. Circa 1890's. It is in very good condition considering it is well over 100 years old with a little wear to be seen on the back of the brooch.There is a typical Victorian style roll in pin. Someone has obviously cherished it over the years. There is a small safety clasp attached for extra security. Recently brought back from England. Gift boxed by Vintageonline.
