A late 19th century Pietra Dura Brooch of unusual design.

$ 0.00

The jeweler has used slices of colorful Agate to inlay the image of a Butterfly into the slate instead of using the more traditional coral, turquoise and greenstone. The effect is very abstract and contemporary although this was created more than 100 years ago! Unmarked 18kt Gold frame complete with safety chain  (which I detest) and always remove on my personal pieces and is hidden in the image.

Condition: Good

Height  1 7/16 ins  x 1 ins  Width 

Italian circa 1890
