This Late Victorian Art Nouveau hornet brooch with hexagon shaped dark purple amethyst glass is an unusual beauty!

Highly detailed and ornate, this fabulous piece has both Victorian and Art Nouveau characteristics as shown by the stylized scalloped edge with tulip flower details and the intricate wasps or hornets on either side of the stone whose wings act as a showcase for a lovely dark purple, hexagon shaped amethyst glass stone. There is a slight nick in the center of the stone and the setting is a bit rough but the stone is not loose at all and is fabulous when lit up by natural light! The c-clasp is in fine working order with only a slight bend to the straight pin. The gold gilt brass is in very good conditon. This is a large pin measuring 2 1/4" by 1 3/8" high. Fabulous find for a collector!

For packages sent first class mail, insurance is NOT included. Priority mail packages are insured by the USPS against loss or damage up to $50.00. First Class Mail does NOT include insurance. If you live in a place where packages walk away or where the mailman frequently delivers to the wrong address, we highly recommend you purchase extra insurance.

Under the EU’s distance selling laws, buyers have the right to return certain products for any reason by contacting the seller within 14 days. This 14-day period will start the moment a customer receives a product, rather than at the time he or she purchases it. Please note that in the EU, the refund a seller provides in the event of a return is required to include the shipping cost for the initial delivery to the buyer.

When a package is shipped internationally, it may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed by the destination country. Generally, these fees are hard to predict and are paid by the buyer.
The goodies in my shop are true vintage so they are old, antique and previously loved. They will therefore show wear commensurate with age. I will always do my best to portray an accurate impression of each item via descriptions and pictures. Since these items are vintage, often one of a kind pieces, we can not produce them in different sizes or colors. A happy you makes for a happy us so please read our policies and don't hesitate to ask questions or voice your concerns!!!
Please do not purchase vintage jewelry for children under 16. Since the items we find are vintage and antique and previously owned, we have no way of determining total metal content on many of the unmarked items.
