ANTIQUE VICTORIAN LIZARD BROOCH PASTE STERLING SILVER CIRCA 1890
A fabulous Antique Victorian brooch modelled in Sterling Silver, depicting a colourful lizard decorated with stripes of old cut emerald green and white Pastes Stones down the back and red Paste eyes.
Victorian jewellery mirrored Queen Victoria’s life with the ‘Romantic’ period producing decorative animal pieces such as lizards, symbolising the monarch’s sentimental side.
Paste is a heavy, transparent flint glass that simulates the fire and brilliance of gemstones. White Pastes sparkle just like Diamonds and take expert craftsmanship to capture their beauty.
A lovely piece of jewellery and history, it will look fantastic when worn.
