An magnificent antique star shaped Georgian Cut Steel brooch. Entirely made by hand, with each section shaped and faceted with immense skill and attention to detail and then applied to the shaped backing. At the height of fashion in the mid 18th century, English Cut Steel was famous for it's beauty. This brooch makes a fabulous centrepiece (and talking point) to any outfit and is splendrously sparkly in a gorgeous antique greyed way. It measures 5cm across and is in all original condition.
The wonder of this piece is that the back is as interesting as the front, as one can see the painstaking construction of this incredible piece so clearly. If you'd like to know more about Cut Steel jewellery...
