A charming antique brooch from the late Victorian period, circa 1900! Made in 9ct gold and Australian origin, the brooch features a crescent motif accented with seven imitation seed pearls. The seed pearls are graduated in size from smallest at the end to large in the centre. A good-sized lush red doublet gemstone adorns the centre of the brooch. The lush red doublet gemstone, also known as a garnet top doublet which was typical for the era, rests in a six-prong setting. The double bar design brooch is decorated with wonderful repousse detail at either end, and a coiled wire with a single granule rests at the top of the bar. Adding further antiquity charm is a chain draped below which supports a sweet puff heart. Just gorgeous! The original metal pin and "C" closure is on the reverse of the brooch. A darkened silver-toned safety chain/pin attaches to the brooch - it can easily be unhooked if you wish to have it removed.

The brooch is in remarkable condition for the 100+ age. Along the back of the brooch bears several stamps including "9C" denoting 9ct gold, and "R" which is that of Robert Rollason, and later Rollason & Co of Sydney, New South Wales (1888 - 1925).

The brooch style can be seen in the book 'Australian Jewellers Gold & Silversmiths Makers & Marks' by K Cavill, G Cocks and J Grace, page 205 (Rollason & Co page).

A rather regal looking brooch which is sure to add a touch of class to the blouse, or jacket!
