Chinese carved carnelian brooch, c.1920

Sunday, August 21st, 2016

This oval carved carnelian brooch with a pierced floral pattern in a simple silver setting was made in China around 1920. It measures 1.25 inches by 1.5 inches. After it dropped and broke in half, a resourceful jeweler laced it back together with silver wire, using the pierced holes in the design.
