Exquisite antique silver Austro Hungarian brooch hailing from the Edwardian era.
Fashioned in suffragette colors the brooch is enameled in white crescent, purple flowers and black scroll motifs. The front is set with an oval deep green natural chrysoprase cabochon accented at the top and bottom with 10 little genuine ruby gemstones in a bright rose pink color.
Synonymous with jewelry created in the Austrian Hungarian Empire the brooch is in the Renaissance revival style and highly detailed with the back almost as decorative as the front and it fastens with a sturdy pin back.
A superbly crafted brooch, steeped in history and in incredible condition especially given age! We have the matching bracelet on the last 2 photos available should you be tempted into a set.
