Curated Jewels for the Vintage Collector. All of the detail in this piece makes its miniature size that much more impactful. The natural agate stone was carefully cut to create the white bullseye patterning and is smooth and glossy with a slightly domed shape.
The white circle of the stone has a dynamic relationship to the greek key enameled border. Possibly meant to be a mourning piece originally, the back of the brooch has its original glass panel ready to hold a photo of a special person or beloved animal perhaps. Very good , there are some small and shallow dimples/dents along the edges and sides of the brooch which is noticeable mainly when examining the sides of the piece.
There are no signs of repair to the piece. There are no chips or wear to the agate, the glass panel is intact and the greek key enameling is fresh without wear.
