Austro-hungarian Pin Brooch & Pendant Garnet Cabochon Turquoise Sterling Silver
Very old highly collectible antique austro-hungarian brooch / pendant. Lacy sterling silver filigree is set with a central raspberry red rhodolite garnet cabochon and framed with an interesting green blue turquoise like stone. I was assuming the green gems were bezel set turquoise, but upon close inspection they have scrape marks on each top. Perhaps they are some sort of early paste, manmade material, ceramic, or maybe this was just the method of setting/grinding the stones at the time. Totally interesting and original either way. There aren’t any marks that I can find – but jewelry from this region and era is known to have very small hidden markings. It does test to be sterling silver. The loops on each end when the piece is laying horizontal vary in shape ever so slightly – I think it was designed that way so you could also wear this as a pendant. Even the reverse or back side has fancy scrolling engraving / metalwork. Simple c clasp pin back hardware. Measures approximately 1 5/8″ x 1 1/8″. Great vintage condition – no damage or quirks to mention. View & enlarge photographs to closely inspect fine details and to determine the amount of patina, and/or wear – as most older pieces by nature normally have some degree of both. Please utilize the scroll arrows beside the photos to allow yourself the opportunity to view them all. Remember to check my other items. All items are stored in my super clean, smoke free home.
