Super early Victorian giardinetti brooch set with multicolor paste stones, marcasites, and a pearl, in silver. Giardinetti jewelry (from the Italian for garden) was popular in the late 18th and early 19th century and depicted a basket of flowers set with brightly colored stones. The basket is formed of silver twist and set with marcasites. The flower bouquet features pink, red, green and clear pastes, marcasites and a central natural pearl. Very good condition; one marcasite lacking and one has been replaced with a clear paste stone. Measures 1”.
