Antique Victorian Brass Dragon Sash Pin Topaz Glass: This fabulous figural Victorian sash pin features a textured brass background embellished with a rose gold plated dragon with spread wings. Accenting the top of the brooch is a large multi faceted glass topaz stone set in an open back bezel. The open c-clasp holds quite securely. The brass shows age appropriate wear. I have not polished the brass, I will leave that to the new owner to do or not as you choose. The brooch measures 1 7/8 by 1 5/8" and is unsigned.
Antique Victorian Engraved Buckle Style Sash Pin: This lovely antique Victorian sash pin features a rectangular shape bordered in a beaded motif, with a pattern of leaves and flowers etched in to the brass metal. The center has the buckle style hook, which is purely decorative. It closes securely with an open "C" clasp and measures 2 3/4 by 2". The condition is wonderful. I have not polished, I think it looks fabulous as is.
Antique Edwardian Sterling Queen Conch Cameo Ring with Poppy Pods: This wonderful Edwardian ring is crafted in sterling silver with a motif of poppy pods running up both sides. The cameo is carved from queen conch shell, hence its light pink color. Her hair is up swept and her gown leaves a shoulder bare. This is a small ring, for a pinky finger only, but could be sized up slightly, although I would not advise it. The cameo measures 7/8 by 5/8" and the ring is signed STERLING.
Antique Victorian Taille D'Epargne Enamel Tracery Buckle Bracelet: This lovely antique Victorian buckle bracelet is actually a faux buckle, as the oval bracelet is hinged and opens on the side. The bracelet is 3/4" wide and oval in profile. The taille d'epagrne tracery enamel is in very good condition. The bracelet has the original safety chain and a tight hinge. There are two tiny spots beside the buckle in silver, they do not appear to be plating wear as much as tiny drops of solder. The interior of the bracelet shows normal age wear. The bracelet is marked with PAT APLD 1872. A super bracelet!
Victorian Blackened Sash Brooch with Black Molded Glass Stones: This stunning late Victorian sash brooch features an unusual foliate design with art nouveau elements, most likely a transition piece. Possible a mourning piece, with the metal having been blackened and the use of black stones, but it would not have been deep mourning due to the use of faceted stones. Since the death rate was high, and even cousins were mourned, women were often in black, and black became a fashion statement. The brooch is quite unusual, and I can't find another like it. The black faceted glass stones are molded. The brooch is large like most sash brooches, measuring 3 1/4 by 2 1/4". The open C-clasp holds securely.
Antique Victorian Scottish Agate Sterling Buckle Brooch: This enchanting brooch hails from the mid to late 1800's when Queen Victoria became enamored with all things Scottish, especially the "pebble" jewelry. The brooch is sterling silver ( unmarked and tested) and set with banded agate and jasper in an engraved silver setting. It is embellished with a silver buckle ( garter) on the left side. If you look bottom right on the brooch, you can see what appears to be a separated stone..but the edges are smooth, and the stones are secure, so I have no idea if it was originally this way. The brooch has a tube hinge and open c-clasp and has no makers marks. It measures 1 1/2 by 1 1/4".
Late Victorian Glass Cameo Brooch Goddess Flora: This lovely late Victorian or early 20th century cameo brooch is crafted in glass layers, the background a deep brick red, the goddess Flora in white. She is beautifully molded, with flowers in her hair and the cornucopia on her forehead. The cameo is set in a gold filled twisted frame, and sits quite securely in the bezel. The open c-clasp hold the pin securely. This lovely brooch is in wonderful condition and measures 1 1/2 by 1 1/4". I can find no signatures or markings.
Antique Gold Filled Horseshoe and Four Leaf Clover Locket Necklace Paste Rhinestones: A transitional period lucky locket from the late Edwardian era, this lovely horseshoe and clover locket is marked Pat. April, 1913. The locket features an engraved horseshoe set with sparkling paste rhinestones enclosing an engraved four leaf clover with a paste rhinestone center. The gold plated finish is in very good condition with one small dark spot on the bottom right. The locket opens to reveal a rose gold plated ring with plastic on one side. The dating appears on the top of the other side of the locket. The chain is original, measures 18" and has the old style "thumbless" spring ring clasp. The locket measures 1 3/8 by 1 1/8".
Antique Victorian Crescent Moon Paste Rhinestone and Turquoise Brooch: This antique Victorian brooch dates from the late 1800's, when crescent moon pieces were hugely popular. The moon is one of the oldest symbols used by mankind, with the waxing and waning of the moon symbolizing starting over or rebirth. The moon was also tied to the feminine and female empowerment, with an emphasis on new relationships. This stunning moon is crafted in two layers, the bottom crescent is made from brass and the top from 800 silver. The brooch is set with a row of graduated paste rhinestones, absolutely brilliant but for a few of the smaller ones which have darkened over time, seen at the crescent points. The top row is sky blue turquoise from the country which starts with a "P", but due to PayPal shutting down sales that mention this country, shall remain nameless. The brooch is unmarked, but I acid tested the silver. All stones are prong set in secure settings. The brooch measures 1 1/2 by 1 1/2" and has a tube hinge and a C-clasp. There are a few tiny tiny fleabites to the paste stones, only visible under magnification. The condition if this piece is amazing!

The pin stem measures 2 1/2" long and is marked 10K. Both the top and the pin stem acid test as 10k gold.
