A simply stunning, and really quite unusual, Giuliano brooch modelled as a spider on its web. The craftsmanship is (of course) exceptional, with a superb level or detail/realism.

It's crafted in 15k gold and silver, and dates from the turn of the 20th Century - offered in the original fitted presentation box.
