I try to provide good pictures & be picky about descriptions. I have more great jewelry for sale this week so check it out if you have time.This is a fabulous & unusual old brooch. I believe it's a Georgian period one, but the pin back machanism has been a later addition. It features many oval & round real rubies, but they are somewhat crudely cut. At the bottom, a stone may have come out & been replaced with a smaller garnet, that is kind of lost in the mounting.
At the very top it is missing one stone, but as it kind of curls forward there, it's not that noticeable on first glance. It's a whopping 4" long, & about 15/16" at widest at the top.There are 2 layers of metal visible on the reverse. It was once totally gilt, but much of that has worn. I believe the base metal is silver. Typically much French fine jewelry was made that way. It has that mogul Middle Eastern feel, with the ruby clustering.
