Antique French Griffin Brooch Diamond 18k Gold

$ 5,720.00

He might be a Wyvern from the Kingdom of Sussex or perhaps he is a Big Maw from Poitou region of France. He could be a Griffin and just not showing his rear legs, or just a straight up Dragon. Whatever he is, he is gorgeous and beautifully detailed in his golden glory.

Hand crafted in France in about 1890, this 18 karat gold brooch is stunning in its craftsmanship. You can see very clearly the feathers of his wings and the rippling muscles of his arms, the scales of his long and winding tail. In his mouth he holds an old European cut diamond which weighs approximately .55 carats.

This fantastic brooch, which could also be worn as a pendant, measures 39.6 mm north to south and 33.7 mm across, it is marked with the French assay mark for 18k gold, the eagles head mark. It weighs 9.6 grams. The pin stem unscrews from the back and the C clasp hinges to lay flat so that a chain can be attached to the back loops and it can be worn as a pendant.
