We offer a Scottish Brooch of flowing form, rare beauty and fine workmanship.  The Agate stones, set in silver, are intricately sculpted and bevelled.  The design suggests a variation of the love-knot or of a bow emerging from a circle.  It is a glorious romantic token symbolizing endless or eternal love.  The colors are rich and saturated, yet not bold.  The overall feeling of softness is a triumph for the stoneworker.  This is a brooch of museum quality c. 1860-1880.  A relative to this jewel is photographed in the volume entitled “Victorian Jewelry” by Ginny Dawes and Corrine Davidov, pg. 81, Abbeville Press.
