Victorian French Paste Crescent Moon Antique Brooch

This striking brooch is a lovely example of Victorian paste jewellery and was sourced in France. 

Condition Report:

Very Good - Some darkening to the metal reverse and one paste at the tip of the moon is lossing its brightness. This is only visible upon very close inspection.

The Details...

This brooch features a crescent moon design detailed with high quality, round, clear paste stones, graduating in size. They are set into what is most likely Sterling Silver - a tiny hallmark appears to be present, but this has been rubbed and worn over time. The brooch fastens with a 'C' catch and the fastening pin is fitted to the reverse of the brooch with a tube hinge. The brooch measures 3cm in diameter. 

Wear it With...

Brooches are an exceptionally simple way to add instant vintage styling to any look and interest to plain materials. Pin this piece onto a hat, lapel, collar, cuff, scarf, sleeve, waistline or bag - wear alone or with a selection.
