Offered is a marvelous early 19th century European (probably French) 18 karat yellow gold brooch depicting the Roman Goddess Mercury holding a beautiful 20 point quality diamond in mouth while her hair is glamorously decorated with two wings. Mercury is the Roman mythology god of eloquence, skill, trading, and thieving, herald and messenger of the gods, who was identified with Hermes. This stunning and antique 18 karat gold brooch is very rare in its kind, measuring 25 mm x 30 mm and weighing 10.27 grams.
