Description

DATE: Georgian, c.1800

Wonderful Georgian Saint Esprit brooch; the dove in flight is a worldly embodiment of the Christian Holy Ghost. This one's beautifully worked, set with bright white paste gemstones and holding an olive branch in its beak. It dates from the turn of the 19th Century, maybe a little earlier, modelled in silver throughout.
