Description

DATE: Early Victorian, c.1840

A beautiful early Victorian diving swallow brooch set with bright white paste gemstones. The sterling silver has oxidised around the stones, creating the most gorgeous patina, and also enhancing the appearance of the pastes through increased contrast. It's superbly made and remains in excellent condition - swipe through to see the detail to its head, and the ruby cabochons set as eyes.
