Early to mid-Victorian era, Bohemian carvers - not unlike the Swiss Black Forest carvers - look at the slender legs on those dogs. Yes, one has gone missing on each of the dogs standing, over the nearly 200 years since it was carved (front leg, dog to far left, and center) but little else by way of flaw to report.
Even the leafy trees remain. Incredible little works of art, aren't they?
It's taken me decades to collect them all. RARE, you'll see them in the jewelry collections of London's British Museum, the V&A, and in Paris in the Louvre, as well. Mounted hinged pin and c-clamp are in silver metal.
I've pulled out the stashes of antique jewelry and will be working at getting it all listed in weeks ahead. Do come back and pick your favorites.Thank you for following us, and for your many years of business. We love what we do! Very good condition for age and type. As noted, leg and a half gone missing, but look at the personality and delicacy managed in those 3 dogs and in the tree and leaves. The brooch is 2" wide, 1 3/4" tall and about 1/4 thick plus the metal pin apparatus. We're easy to deal with.
