Charming Victorian era 14K gold brooch (unmarked but acid tested by my jeweler) features a small Pinscher or possibly Chihuahua type dog in reverse carved and painted rock crystal or what is commonly known as Essex crystal.
Brooch is 2 5/8″ long (6.7 cm) and measures 3/4″ across the center.(2 cm)
There is an older non-locking C style clasp.
The metal has a hint of pink or rose which is also typical of much Victorian gold jewelry. The back of the crystal is open. There is some silvering of the crystal which is not unusual to find in a piece of this age, along with a small scratch in the glass on the inside of the crystal that is less than one mm in size.
The design of the brooch includes fine beading on the vertical bars and raised rounded details on three of the ends as well as on the middle bar. There is one bar that is missing this additional detail. The pin stem is slightly bent but closes securely and there are some areas of slight wear to the gold metal. Total weight of brooch is 10.3 g when measured on a digital scale. Please see photos for further information as this is an important part of the description. This charming piece is well over 100 years old and does show signs of wear as mentioned. Due to the age of the item, some wear is to be expected.
This piece would make a great addition to a collection of antique jewelry, or a special gift for someone who is a dog lover.
