SOLD Late Victorian 15kt Gold Dendritic Agate Brooch
An extremely pretty brooch from the late Victorian period, c1890. The brooch is made from 15kt gold and is a beautiful rope twist frame housing a wonderful piece of dendritic agate. The agate seems to depict a leafless tree and has a slightly haunting quality about it. The brooch is a good size and would look perfect on a piece of Autumnal knitwear. Alternatively, it would also make a great necklace.
