OLD Haskell style brooch Egyptian coral Trembler PIN
This is for an early trembler TRUMPET FLOWER ( see last photo) brooch that is one of the most extraordinary ones I have ever brought out of my collections. Not only is it a massive piece but it has this center lapis cabochon that is surrounded by exquisitely faceted prism glass pieces that look like luminescent opal moonstones. Lots of fire in these too. Between them are filigree lily tubes with leaves at the top with glass coral tremblers that drip out of them with tiny fancy gold beads. ALL wired into these tubes. I have to say , this has a lot of hand work . The piece is 2 ½" x 2 1/3" and is arched up to give it more dimension. It is heavy and really well made. The color is more soft coral than pink or orange as it seems to show in the photos. The gilt is in great shape with only a few places on the back where the air has changed its color to a darker brass. When you hold this in different lights the prism beads change from periwinkle to yellow to bright white. If you want a piece that makes anything you wear look like a million bucks then this would be a great choice. In my opinion it is in great condition with no chips, scratches or damage to any of the beads.Since this is Irreplaceable there can be no returns on this sale.
