No reproduction without prior written consent. We'll be sending out sale notices and special deals to our'Favorites' customers.RARE - not only is it a fine Georgian seed pearl item in very good form, it is a huge one and a tremblant, as well. The motion-activated segments rise from the surface and shimmer, motion - movement as the wearer moves, drawing every eye. Imagine it as a bodice ornament, being danced around an 1830s Grand Ball, England. Or the pin holding it as a stunning tiara or ornament for a French chignon in a Paris Palace event. Can be worn as a large lapel brooch, a bodicer of magnificent effect, a hair ornament, or even as a tiara, the way it's made. It is a full 6 1/4" in length, 2 1/2" top to bottom, and the tremblant branches extend its depth to about 3/4. Stunning piece from my personal collection. It comes with the more modern mid-1900s pearl box to protect it well, and does not have the old original Georgian box. I would have loved to see it within a filled leather parure presentation box, wouldn't you? Very good condition for age and type. This one has a few small pearls missing here or there and was meant to be fully restored, but the sweet lady who did such things for me passed away before it was done. I have salvaged period brooch panel with tiny pearls and numerous other sized pearls to go with it so whomever buys it can do the restoration, if desired, and have a perfect specimen. Would be incredible, even as is, for a bride's veil headpiece, wouldn't it. Truly, one could even attach a gold chain at ends and wear as a necklace. Photos in great detail can show you where the few missing pearls are. This is a museum quality piece you'd expect to see at the British Museum, London, or the V&A.
I had a difficult time capturing the color of the pearls - an atypical cloudy dark day in San Diego, and against the lining of the box, it reflects a darker and yellowish tint, but these are a fabulous color and well matched. The panel with 3 images of it and measurements capture the coloration closest, I think. The extra large ones are for examining condition.We're easy to deal with. Our fine inventory is very important.
