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!
