FEMININE FLORAL AGATE ( Victorian Jewelry Agate Brooch ): Here is an appealing and unusual Victorian Bull’s Eye Agate Brooch. Unlike the simple starkness of many agate pieces, this Antique Brooch is both graceful and sweetly feminine. (1860-80) The large oval black & white central agate is surrounded by 6 skillfully hand carved floral blossom agates. A marvel of skill and artistry, the white level of the navette shaped blossom and leaf design has been carved down to the black lower level. The setting is 9KT rose gold and retains its original C clasp and extended Victorian pin stem. There is a glass covered compartment in the back where a personal memento could be placed. A brooch like this could have been used for mourning or sentimental purposes. A remarkable and captivating carved agate brooch representing the Grand Period of Victorian Jewelry. If you collect banded agate, this is a marvelous addition to any collection. Condition: Excellent. Size: 1 3/4” wide, 1 1/4” high, 1/2” deep. Central Bull’s Eye Agate is 1” wide, 5/8” high.
