Antique Edwardian Silver Paste Dragonfly Brooch

My customer held out this wonderfully sparkly little beast for me to look at and I passed on it right away, I just figured it would cost a small fortune.

“Really?” she asked, “you don’t like it?”

“No,” I assured her, “I love it, I just don’t think it’s in the budget!”

“But, it’s paste!” she laughed, “it’s not expensive!”

Obviously I had to bring it home after that! This super sparkly dragonfly is so convincing that everyone will think he has diamonds for wings and bright emerald body. He doesn’t, but I won’t tell.

Beautifully hand crafted in about 1910, this silver brooch is set with white, green and red paste gems that glitter with your every move. The large brooch measures 71.7 mm across from wing tip to wing tip and is 41.9 mm north to south at the body; it weighs 20.9 grams.

This brooch would be particularly beautiful worn to close those beautiful sweaters that never seem to come with buttons these days!
