A very pretty antique Etruscan style diamond set bar brooch in 9k yellow gold.
The centre of the bar has a beautiful applied design in the Etruscan style with a sparkling diamond.
The brooch is very clearly hallmarked which indicated it was made in Birmingham circa 1853/54.
This lovely ornamentation with granulation work in flower and foliage detail is a wonderful representation of Etruscan Revival, a style which enjoyed a resurgence of popularity during the Victorian Era. Granulation in this case refers to the tiny side by side applied balls and thin strips of gold to create patterns and texture.
