A very good Victorian brooch worked in pietra-dura. The design depicts a colorful purple iris blossom with foliage and buds against a black background. The pieces of stone are very well-cut and fit tightly into the design. The back retains the original brass pinstem and c-clasp.
Origin: Italy, ca. 1880. Condition: excellent, all original. Size: 1-1/8 diameter.
