Georgian 15ct Gold Closed Back Garnet Comet Brooch Tiny Size Rare Antique c 1830

A beautiful and rare early 19th Century Halley's Comet small size brooch or pin. This very sweet little brooch was designed to replicate the astronomical phenomenon, Halley's Comet that had passed through the night skies in 1758 and 1835.

The brooch is made of rose coloured gold that tests as at least 15ct, possibly 18ct. The head of the brooch resembles a flowerhead and is set with closed back, foiled back faceted red stones that we presume are garnets. Below the head is the tail of the comet and on the back of the brooch is a pair of hand stipple engraved initials - look like R.A and J or I N. There is also a worn stamped mark that is difficult to decipher but probably the maker's monogram. 

The brooch is just 3/4 inch or 18.5 mm long and 3/8th inch or 11 mm wide. The pin has a tube type hinge and it fastens very securely to a c-clasp. It weighs 0.7 grammes and is in very good condition throughout - ready to wear. 

This is a rare and highly collectable item of late Georgian to William IV jewellery. Free domestic and international shipping with this item.
