Product Description

This interesting piece is in very good condition. Made from the small pieces of opal a miner could not use and encased by a goldsmith.

The brooch is made from a small decorative glass tube filled with clear oil and small opal chips. The tube has then been sealed with gold caps and brooch fittings attached. One end has a marking for 9ct which is mostly obscured by the balled end. The pin is attached with an antique tube hinge and secures beneath an antique C type clasp.

The opal chips are full of colour and remain bright and reflective. So often these pieces have a dirt residue which pools to the base of the tube. This one does not and the stones are quite brilliant.

There is no damage to the piece.

There is a small air bubble to the oil in the tube as can be seen.

The brooch is 58mm long x 7mm.
