|A superb quality example of hand cut steel jewelry c. 1830. The large brooch was made to shine in candlelight. No electric lights were in existence. To attract surrounding light, tiny pieces of steel were faceted like antique diamonds and set into a frame of the jeweler's design with minuscule rivets. The finest examples contain various sizes of steel "stones. This dazzling brooch uses faceted and mirrored steel. The result attained is unique and quite fantastic. Take particular notice of the condition by checking the back of the brooch as well as the front. The condition is excellent|
