Reverse Crystal Intaglio Bi-Color Gold Sporting Brooch
Dating from the 1880s, this Victorian era bi-color gold brooch depicts a coastal scene of ducks in flight, in reverse-painted rock crystal, set above a mother-of-pearl ground. Ducks and colorful drakes take flight in landscape of reeds, shallow waters and golden-green marshlands, within a chased rose and yellow gold frame of interwoven cat tails and curving fronds. Beautifully integrated in design, with the polychrome marshland scene blending into the frame with chased water plants, this pictorial brooch celebrates the natural beauty of the coastal landscape.
