Antique Silver Paste Halleys Comet Brooch 19th C Swedish Rare
Antique silver and clear paste Halley’s Comet brooch dating from the 19th century.
The brooch is marked 830s for silver and has the Swedish import mark that was used at this time although we cannot discern the actual year letters. It is very much in the style of Comet brooches produced after 1835 when the comet was visible in the night skies.
The brooch is just 1 1/8th inch long and the long pin fastens securely to a c shaped catch. The central large paste has a fairly significant chip to the top face but otherwise the brooch is in good order and ready to wear.
A very nice item for any collector. Please see my other Swedish silver brooch also listed for sale this week.
