An unusual Antique French brooch from the late 19th Century depicting a rather abstract Poodle decorated with sparking white Paste Stones with a green Paste eye.
Paste is a transparent flint glass that is cut to simulate the beauty of gemstones. White Pastes sparkle just like Diamonds and take expert craftsmanship to capture their beauty.
The piece has been loving crafted with curling Silver metalwork resembling the dog’s fluffy legs and head. It is a unique design and a perfect gift for a dog lover.
