This stunning, 18ct Yellow Gold Georgian brooch depicts a grieving lady sat with her loving dogs under a tree, Circa 1750.

Due to its age, Georgian jewellery is quite rare, with some pieces almost three hundred years old. From 1714 until 1837 four King Georges and a short-lived William gave rise to this extended period, spanning many fashions that are reflected in these stunning pieces of Georgian jewellery.

The hand painted sepia mourning brooch is set with a 18ct Gold rim and lovely old cushion cut Paste Stones that sit around the frame of the brooch.

The brooch is all 18ct Yellow Gold which has turned a rosy gold with age.

Sepia painting is a picture painted in brown tones (sepia) on to ivory, in which the paint was made of finely chopped hair.

These pictures were always of a scenic nature.

Many times the fine lines were done with Indian ink and then the hair was used as embellishment.

The brooch weighs 9.2 grams.

Measures 30mm across x 45mm down.


In excellent condition.
