Extraordinary Antique Victorian Citrine Cannetille Brooch

£2,250.00
#96032

A most fabulous early Victorian bodice jewel in wonderfully preserved condition. Entirely fashioned by hand with the greatest of skill, the fine Cannetille work is crafted in 14 or 15ct yellow Gold, and spun as a thread to create delicate floral lacework around the glowing gem. Lifted high and presented upon an engraved border, all is quite splendidly ornate and a wonderful example of its kind. We estimate that the deep Cognac coloured Citrine weighs in the region of 35-40cts. Closes with a traditional steel pin on a 'C' clasp. Measures just over two inches across the widest part and two inches widthwise.
